Sudan Tuesday afternoon came from behind to beat Zambia 2 – 1 in a the first Cecafa Senior Challenge semi-final match in Mombasa, Kenya.

Superspot reports that the match was a complex one as both sides applied every tactic to keep their opponents at bay forcing the action into extra time.


Zambia had the first chance to threaten in the fifth minute through Felix Katongo but his freekick was parried over by the Sudan keeper.


The second half marked an improved Sudan side as Salah Ibrahim turned to be the main tormentor of the Zambians.


Amier Kamal dribbled into the box and unleashed a low strong shot but it rolled way off the target.


Zambia again bounced back towards the end of the 90 minutes but neither of the side found the back of the net forcing the match into the extra time.


Action was even tougher in the extra time as the team drifted into the offensive with Sudan evidently the better side in the early stages.


Zambians punished them with a Ronald Kampamba goal after controlling the ball in the area and sending a tough shot into the roof of the net five minutes later.


The Sudan side hit back moments later with a Miaaz Abdelraham goal from an Ibrahim pass.


Salah Ibrahim then made up for his previous expensive miss with a thunderbolt only a minute to the end of extra time after chesting the ball at the edge of the area and volleying the ball home.


The win pushed the resilient side into the final where they will face Kenya’s Harambee Stars.
