Cosafa-U20: Late Swaziland goal denies Uganda victory

Cosafa-U20: Late Swaziland goal denies Uganda victory

Order Mamba scored a late equaliser to deny Uganda a second win at the ongoing 2017 Mopani Cosafa-U20 Championships in the second match of Group A played at Arthur Davis Stadium in Kitwe this afternoon.

Swaziland started in high gear and thought they had gone ahead in the 3rd minute but Tsabedze Muzi’s goal was disallowed for offside.

However, in the 23rd Minute Muzi got his second goal of the tournament to put Swaziland ahead.

Uganda equalized in the 29th Minute through Muhammad Shaban to register his third goal of the campaign.

It was all square at the break in what was an entertaining first half.

Allan Okello put Uganda 2-1 up in the 51st Minute and it looked like he had grabbed the winner.

But Swaziland equalized in the 89th minute through Order Mamba to earn a point.

Uganda will now have to wait for their final Group A match against Malawi on Monday 11 December 2017.
