Tanzania defeated Burundi with 3-2 during their second game played at the Njeru based FUFA technical center on Monday.
Ethiopia has defeated Eritrea 5-0, at the CECAFA U-20 Women game played at the Njeru based FUFA technical centre on Monday.

Ethiopia's goals were scored by Ridet Assrasanagwa, Tadasse Bizuayehu, Meadin Sehilu, Turist Lema and Mihret Tessema.

Eritrea's head coach Ibrahim Suleiman says that the girls lost the momentum of play due to unknown reasons, costing him the three points in today's game.

Suleiman adds that, unlike some of the participating teams in this championship, his team lacks exposure to international friendlies, which limits their tactical displays during both regional and continental tournaments.

  "We just train amongst ourselves without exposure to international friendlies, which limits the girls from benchmarking on the skills of others with more experience in women football," he says.

Firew Hailegebral, the head coach of Ethiopia says that he prepares the girls to respect all the teams they are slated to interface within the course of the tournament, which enables them to carry a winning mindset throughout the games.

Meanwhile, Tanzania defeated Burundi with 3-2.

  The game was competitive with both teams exhibiting fair ball display and creating seemingly equal scoring opportunities in the game.

However, both Burundi's assistant coach, Patrick Shimirimana and his counterpart, Bakari Nshime, the head coach of Tanzania raised a red flag about what they termed as poor match officiating, a challenge, which deterred them from achieving their win.
