    Sudan lose 17 players over age [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] Finny Muyeshi, Khartoum
    Cecafa has sent packing 17 Sudan players after they were found ineligible to feature in the ongoing regional under-17 tournament in Sudan.
    The Sudanese have subsequently forfeited their Thursday night fixture against Tanzania and given until Saturday morning to present a proper side.
    Cecafa General Secretary Nicholas Musonye said document’s provided to support the players’ availability for the tournament clearly indicated that they were over-aged and wondered how the team bothered with their registration.
    Hew said further sanction could follow.
    Tournament sponsor, President Omer Bashir addressed the tournament’s Khartoum opening ceremony but left moments before Sudan and Tanzanian played a ceremonial match.
    The hosts won 3-0 but will be seeking better wins in their remaining two matches against Somalia on Saturday and Malawi two days later to have hopes of making the quarter finals.
    They capitalized on windy and dusty conditions to pump goals past a desperate Tanzania side in the fifth minute through Mohamed Abdelmonim and a double from Moez Nasradin in the seventh and 22nd minutes.
    According two passports provided by the team, most of the players were aged 18 while one was 20.

    Malawi 3 Somalia 1
    Guest side Malawi played the better part of the second half a man less but still managed to beat Somalia 3-1 in another Group A match played at the Usra Club in Khartoum.
    Malawi snatched the lead in the 13th minute through Andrew Mpetina before Lughindiko Mushani scored a double in the 16th and 40th minutes.
    Somalia’s lone goal came in the 20th minute through Abdiaziz Mohamedali. Malawi suffered a major blow in the 66th minute when Francis Mulimbika was sent off by Lulesseged Ghebremichael (Eritrea) for unsporting behaviour.
    Kenya 1 Zanzibar 3
    High scoring continued in the Juba-based Group B when Zanzibar hit Kenya 3-1 at the Juba Stadium.
    The match was a repeat of their preliminary fixture in Burundi two years ago which when then drawn 1-1.
    Thursday’s match, coming only a day after Uganda had walloped Ethiopia 4-0 in the tournament’s opener saw the islanders take the lead in the 21st minute through Mohamed Abdulahi.
    They stretched the lead eight minutes later through Juma Ali before Kenya pulled one back in the 69th minute through a Daniel Mwaura converted penalty.
    Nassor Ali threw Kenya’s hopes in the dustbin when he scored the third on the stroke of fulltime.
    Rwanda 0 Eritrea 0
    Rwanda who finished fourth behind Rwanda, Uganda and Kenya in the inaugural tournament in Burundi two years ago were held to a barren draw in a Group C match staged in Wadmadeni.
    It was a high-paced match with players from both sides showing off their skills. Rwanda had the best chance to score in the 40th minute but Emmanuel Sebanani shot wide.
