Burundi enjoyed a 2-0 victory over Ethiopia in Bujumbura on Saturday, in the first leg of their 2016 African Nations Championship’s Central-East zone qualifying tie.

A brace from striker Laudy Mavugo either side of half-time handed the local Swallows all three points in front of their home crowd.

Mavugo headed home the opener just one minute into the match, before sealing the win, again with a successful header, into stoppage time.

The Walya Antelopes will have to raise their game when they host Burundi in Addis Ababa in the return leg, with the aggregate winners to book their place at the final tournament, which will take place in Rwanda from 16 January to 7 February 2016.
