The Big Bullets will now face Uganda’s Express FC in the final on Saturday, 14th August 2021 in the second meeting at the tournament.
The Malawi Premier League entity beat Tanzania’s Azam FC 4-2 in a tense post penalty shootout after normal time.
Bright Munthali had a brace for Nyasa Big Bullets as Azam FC got their goals through Nickson Nyasulu (own goal) and Evancy Tepsi Theonasy.
Munthali gave Nyasa Big Bullets the lead after only two minutes to take a 1-0 lead. This forced them to the mandatory halftime break.
Nyasulu, unfortunately, conceded an own goal in the 67th minute for Azam to level matters. Six minutes after that, Theonasy gave Azam the lead for their first time in CECAFA Kagame Cup.
Azam’s joy came with a short life as Munthali got his second goal of the game with only 12 minutes to play.
The extra 30 minutes that were added to the game ended with no goal scored by either side hence calling the penalties.
The CAF General Secretary Veron Mosengo-Omba graced the match with his presence. CECAFA and Tanzania Football Federation (TFF) President Wallace Karia was also present for the match.
