Eritrea battle Sudan in tricky Cecafa U-15 Challenge Cup tie
It will be a tricky encounter as Eritrea face Sudan in the second Group A match on Tuesday at the on-going Cecafa U-15 Challenge Cup.
The hosts who lost the first game 2-1 to Burundi will have to be at their best to pick maximum points at the Asmara National Stadium.
“We are going all out to attack and get goals because we need to win. But we also have to be very cautious at the back,” said Eritrea’s head coach Mekonen Zewde.
He made it clear that they are in a difficult position after both kenya and Burundi have all picked two wins already. “The boys are motivated to come and play their hearts out,” added the coach.
Eritrea will look to skipper Noad Habtom, Solomon Meron and Abdela Mohamed to close out the Sudanese strikers.
But before Eritrea battle Sudan, the first game will see Group A leaders Kenya taking on Burundi. The match is expected to be a tough encounter since both tams are yet to suffer defeat.
