The 2021 CECAFA U-23 Challenge Cup kicked off in Bahir Dar, Ethiopia on Saturday with the hosts taking on neighbors Eritrea and fans were treated to an entertaining goal fest as the match ended 3-3. Kawowo’s David Isabirye writes that Ethiopia took the lead three times only for Eritrea to equalize and never let the Walias pull away. Ethiopian Coffee players scored all three of the goals for the hosts with star player Abubeker Nasser tallying twice, but in the end Ethiopia will be disappointed that they could not find the full three points. Group B will continue action on Tuesday when Burundi starts off their campaign against Eritrea.
Highlights of the match with all of the goals are below the link to Kawowo’s match report.
