Dar es Salaam. KMC’s hopes of cruising into the first round of Africa Confederation Cup went up into thin smoke after losing to 2-1 to AS Kigali of Rwanda.
KMC needed a clear win in the preliminary round, return leg tie at the National Stadium to qualify to the next round of the second-tier continental club championship.
In the first leg tie in Kigali, a fortnight ago, KMC forced their hosts to a barren draw.
Owned by Kinondoni Municipal Council, KMC are the first local outfit to crash out of the Caf-organised competitions this year.
On Saturday Dar es Salaam Young Africans face Botswana’s Township Rollers in Gaborone after they were held in Dar es Salaam a fortnight ago.
