The score was 0-0 at half-time between Malawi and Uganda.

The deadlock was finally broken 25 minutes into the second-half and it was Franscisco Madinga, who scored to make it 1-0 to Malawi.

However, Steven Mukwala snatched a late equalizing goal to make it 1-1 with nine minutes left on the clock.

The last chance of the match fell for Malawi's Levison Maganizo, who was denied by Saidi denied in stoppage time and the match ended in a 1-1 draw.
