Cecafa 2015: Guests Malawi cruise past Sudan

The Flames started their campaign on a high note after they edged out Sudan 2-1 in second match of Group ‘C’

Malawi started their campaign for Cecafa title on a high note after they edged out Sudan 2-1 in second match of Group ‘C’ played on Monday.

Chiukepo Msowoya put the Flames ahead in the 15th minute before Sudan leveled matters through Atahir El-Tahir. Dalisto Sailesi scored in 32nd minute to ensure Malawi triumphed.

Earlier on, South Sudan got off to a flying start after they beat Djibouti 2-0. Bruno Martinez put the victors ahead in the 28th minute before Dominic Abuyo scored the winner in 73rd minute. Meanwhile, despite his side edging out Uganda Cranes 2-0 in the opening match of the regional tournament, Kenyan coach Bobby Williamson believes there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Speaking to Goal from Addis Ababa, Williamson said: "It was a great performance but we cannot be satisfied with it. There is still a lot we need to do as a team."

He said the team expects a tough match against Burundi on Wednesday in Awassa. Burundi edged out Zanzibar 1-0 in their opening match on Saturday. "I watched them in the first match and I can only say that they are a tough side and we do not expect an easy ride."

He also said he is looking at the squad in training before making a decision on whether to make any changes in Wednesday's match.
