Vihiga Queens FC and Commercial Bank of Ethiopia (CBE) FC will battle in the final to determine who qualifies to represent the CECAFA region at the inaugural TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League.
The Kenyan side defeated Simba Queens FC 2-1 in the semi final on Monday, while CBE FC struggled to see off Uganda’s Lady Doves FC 5-3 in penalty shoot outs after a 1-1 draw.
FIFA Secretary General, Fatma Samoura will grace the final of the final of CECAFA Zonal qualifiers for the TotalEnergies CAF Women’s Champions League.
Doris Petra, the Vice President of Football Kenya Federation (FKF) said they are very happy that Samoura will grace the final and also hold meetings with football officials during her two-day visit.
Geinore Loza, the Commercial Bank of Ethiopia FC skipper, also the leading scorer at the tournament with 13 goals has made it clear that they are determined to take the trophy back home.
“We have worked hard and are now one step away from winning the trophy and qualifying to represent the region during the final of the tournament in Egypt,” said Loza.
But Charles Okere Okoth, the Vihiga Queens FC coach has also said they will be hungry to revenge against the Ethiopia side who beat them 4-2 in the group stage. “We have reorganized and they will not find it easy against us in the final,” said Okoth.
The regional qualifier which kicked off on August 28th attracted eight teams from Uganda, Burundi, Tanzania, Djibouti, Ethiopia, South Sudan, Zanzibar and Kenya.
