Uganda Hippos have learnt their fate at the ongoing CECAFA Under-20 Championship in Arusha, Tanzania.

The Hippos will face Kenya at the semifinal stage who managed to top Group C with maximum points.

The semis will be played on Monday at the Black Rhino Academy.

Uganda who demolished Burundi 6-1 on Thursday, ends the group phase too of Group B.

South Sudan are selected as the best runner up of all the groups after beating Burundi 4-0 to end with four points, below Uganda in group B due to an inferior goal difference.

The South Sudan team will hence face Group A leaders Tanzania who eased past Djibouti and Somalia.

Against Kenya, Uganda have their work cutout against a team that beat Ethiopia and Sudan. The Kenya side has scored five and conceded once.

Ahead of Monday’s semis, the two teams that storm the final, will automatically qualify for the AFCON U-20 next year.
