Kampala (Uganda), July 28 : Uganda qualified for the 2014 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) football with a 3-1 victory over Tanzania in the second leg qualifier played here at the Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.

Uganda, popularly known as the Cranes, qualified with a 4-1 goal aggregate after their 1-0 away win in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, July 13, reports Xinhua.

Frank Kalanda gave the hosts a sixth minute lead before Amri Kiemba equalised 10 minutes later from a precise Mrisho Ngasa cross. Brian Majwega made it 2-1 for the Cranes after 48 minutes from the spot after defender David Luhende handled the ball in the box.
