Fauzia Najjemba scored the only goal as Uganda Crested Cranes beat Ethiopia 1-0 during a group B match of the 2019 CECAFAWomen Challenge cup at the Chamazi Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on Tuesday.

The Kampala Queens forward scored in the 73rd minute of the tight duel –shooting from an acute angle after a brilliant run inside the box.

Najjemba pounced on the loose ball following a poor clearance by Ethiopian defense after Shadia Nankya’s initial long ball from Uganda’s defense.
