For a game that was waited in anticipation given the finalists are border neighbors and Kenya were playing on home soil. The match lived to it’s anticipated hype with both teams exhibiting the brilliance that had brought them thus far. The game ended at a draw under the standard 90 minutes and added time did nothing to change the scoreline. Push came to shoves and the Cecafa senior challenge cup had to be decided through penalty shootouts. Penalty shooters marshalled all their brilliance but Harambee Stars goalkeeper (Matasa) proved superior by stopping Zanzibar’s attempt to ensure the Kenyan Squad were crowned Champions.
