The Black Princesses of Ghana have qualified to the final round of the FIFA U-20 World Cup qualifiers after beating Uganda 5-0 at the Cape Coast stadium on Saturday.

The Princesses went into the game on the back of a 2:1 advantage from the first leg encounter in Uganda.  Ben Fokuo’s team started the game in fine form with a decent build up which gave them an early lead through skipper Evelyn Badu in the 22nd minute.

Salamatu Abdullai who had many clear chances to increase the lead finally scored in the 26th minute.

After recess, Ben Fokuo brought on Rahama Jafar in the 56th minute and her introduction proved very useful as she scored in the 82nd minute to give Ghana a 3-0 lead.

Salamatu Abdullai gave a lovely pass to attacker, Doris Boaduwaa to head home the fourth for the Princesses. The Young Crested Cranes of Uganda pushed for a consolation but were punished in the 90th minute when the referee awarded a penalty to the Princesses of Ghana.

Doris Boaduwaa made no mistake by scoring from the spot - her second on the day to make it 5:0 for the Princesses.

This result puts the Princesses into the final round of qualifiers for the FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup as they progressed on a 7-1 aggregate scoreline setting the stage for a final showdown against Ethiopia.

The Eritrea cycling team has been excluded from the Tour of Rwanda race because its members have not been vaccinated against COVID-19.

Eritrea, a country in the Horn of Africa region, is the only one of the African Union's 55 member states that's yet to vaccinate any of its population.

Rwanda Cycling Federation president Abdallah Murenzi said it was “a requirement” for next month's race that all competitors are fully vaccinated.

"The cyclists from Eritrea said they cannot meet this condition,” Murenzi said.

Five cyclists from Eritrea were expected to compete. Eritrean cyclists won the race in 2019 and 2020.

Rwanda has strict rules in place to fight the pandemic. Authorities have ordered public sector workers to get vaccinated or resign from their jobs and the government said last week that people must be fully vaccinated to access public spaces and attend public events.

Cycling is highly popular in Rwanda and it has been chosen to host the 2025 Road World Championships, the first African nation to be awarded the event. - IGNATIUS SSUUNA, ASSOCIATED PRESS/THE KANSAS CITY STAR

 

Tanzania took a giant leap towards their pursuit for a final round spot in the African qualifiers for the FIFA U20 Women's World Cup, Costa Rica 2022™, securing a 1-0 victory over Ethiopia in Zanzibar on Sunday. 

The fourth round fixture had rekindled the East African rivalry between Tanzania and Ethiopia, after both teams previously earned third round wins over Burundi and Eritrea respectively. 

The home side and reigning COSAFA U20 Championship winner made the brightest start with several chances but couldn't convert them against the Ethiopians as the first half ended in a barren draw at the Amaan Stadium.

After the break, the visiting CECAFA U20 Women's Cup champions also returned to the pitch with intent to snatch an away goal, but it was the Tanzanite that found a breakthrough in the 64th minute thanks to Christer Bahera's effort.

With a goal down, the desperate visitors staged late attempts in closing stages to grab an equaliser but the hosts held on solidly heading into the full time to seal a narrow win.

The slim win handed Tanzania a first leg lead going into the second leg at the Abebe Bikila Stadium in Addis Ababa, where their neighbours Ethiopia will be hoping to overturn the one-goal deficit in a fortnight.

Winner of the grudge East African fixture over two legs will progress to a four-team final phase, where they are scheduled to face either Ghana or Uganda in March 2022. - Confédération Africaine de Football
