CAF Cup: Young Africans, Al Hilal Booted out

Tanzania’s Young Africa and Sudan’s Al Hilal knocked out of the CAF Confederation Cup.

Tanzanian side Young Africa have been shoved out of the tournament despite a hard-fought 2-1 win over Algeria’s USM Alger.

Goals from Dues Kaseke and Heritier Makambo were sufficient to inflict the damage.

Young African have struggled to get a win in their previous four games and made sure they bow out honorably following a 2-1 win over second-placed Alger at the Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar-es-Salam.

Kaseke notched in the first after 44 minutes before Makamba slammed in the second goal three minutes later pouncing on a howler.

Abderahmanne Meziane tried to get the visiting Algerians back into the game with his consolation goal but it was too late too little.

Elsewhere, Aduana Stars of Ghana also failed to reach the next phase having lost to Mimosas of Ivory Coast.

Sudanese current table-toppers Al Hilal Omdurman have also gotten booted out on the heels of a 2-0 defeat to Morocco’s RSB Berkane in Umm Durman.

Togolese goal-getter Fo-do Kodja Laba led the Moroccans’ rout, scoring in the 40th minute via an assist from El Mobaroky before Burkina Faso’s veteran Alain Traore grabbed his debut goal for his new Moroccan side.

Mali’s Djoliba AC Bamako are the other side to leave the championship after finishing on the basement of their group.

Mozambique’s Songo, Williamsville Athletique Club of Ivory Coast and Tanzania’s Rayon Sport are the outfits with a thin chance of qualifying to the quarter-finals of the Total CAF Confederation Cup.
