Jockins Atudo, the leading scorer in the tournament says they are going all out to bring Kenyans joy as they celebrate 50 years of Independence.
The match that was initially set for Machakos, was switched to Nyayo Stadium 60Kms away as a result of a heavy downpour. Clifford Muheso put Kenya ahead of the Kilimanjaro Stars in only three minutes with a neat finish after Tanzanian goalkeeper Ivo Mapunda hit the ball back into play. Tanzania who ejected defending champions Uganda Cranes 3-2 in penalties last Saturday dominated for better spells of the game, but failed to produce the goals with TP Mazembe forward Mbwana Samatta missing two good opportunities.
Earlier Sudan who have played good football in the tournament came from a goal down to see off COSAFA defending champions Zambia 2-1 in the semi-final tie played in Mombasa. Ronald Kampamba opened the score in the 113th minute before Sudan restored parity through Miaaz Abdelrahim in the 117th minute but it was Salah Ibrahim who scored the winner for Sudan to take his tally to four goals in the tournament.
