KCCA striker Nsibambi scored at the 30th and 50th minutes respectively. The 21-year-old striker’s first goal came from a stunning long range effort before completing his brace in in second half.
Right back Wadada made the final statement over Sudan with 5 minutes left for full time to change the scores to 5.
The win not only lifted the cranes to the top of group B table with 4 points as Burundi’s but gave them a superior goal difference a head of second place Burundi.
