Ahram Online , Sunday 24 Mar 2019

Tanzania qualified for the summer Africa Cup of Nations after defeating Uganda 3-0 in Dar es salaam on Sunday.

The Taifa Stars finished second in Group L with eight points, five behind leaders Uganda who had already sealed passage to the tournament.

Forward Simon Msuwa opened the scoring the 21st minute, Erasto Nyoni converted a penalty to double the lead six minutes after the break and defender Aggrey Morris put the icing on the cake four minutes before the hour mark.

Tanzania qualified for the biennial tournament for only the second time, their first since making their debut in 1980.

In the other group match, Cape Verde were held to a goalless draw at home by Lesotho as both sides failed to reach the Nations Cup.
