Addis Ababa, Ethiopia – Rwanda and Uganda are through to the final of the 2015 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup after both sides won their semi-final on penalties.

In Thursday’s first semi-final Rwanda overcame Sudan 4-2 in their penalty shoot-out and Uganda completed the final line-up by winning their spotkicks duel with Ethiopa 5-3.

 

Uganda, the 13-time record winners of the regional tournament, were held to a 0-0 draw with hosts Ethiopia after extra-time.

The Cranes goalkeeper Ismail Watenga saved Gatoch Panom’s first penalty in the shootout and his side never surrendered their advantage. Skipper Farouk Miya struck the winning kick.

The two finalists will also take part in the 2016 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) to be hosted by Rwanda.

While Uganda is chasing a record 14th title, Rwanda only won the trophy once in 1999.
