ALBANIAN CUP: Super sub Sentamu scores twice, sends Tirana to finals



KF Tirana 5-3 Luftetari Gjirokaster

Yunus Sentamu Junior came off the bench and grabbed a brace as KF Tirana defeated Luftetari Gjirokaster 5-3 in the second leg of the Albanian Cup played on Wednesday at the Selman Stermasi stadium in Tirana.

At 3-1, Sentamu replaced Michael Ngoo in the 70th minute and it took him only four minutes to score his first and Tirana’s fourth goal on the evening.

Before Sentamu’s introduction, Asion Daja, Michael Ngoo and Winful Cobbinah (penalty) had given Tirana a comfortable 3-1 lead with Realdo Fili finding the back of the net for Luftetari Gjirokaster.

Aldrit Oshafi pulled another back for the visiting team in the 80th minute but Sentamu restored the three goal cushion with his second three minutes to normal time.

Ismael Dunga scored another consolation for Luftetari Gjirokaster inside the five added minutes before the full-time was blown.

The victory saw Sentamu, Tony Mawejje and teammates march to the final following a goalless draw in the first leg played a week earlier.

KF Tirana will face Kukesi FC who eliminated Skenderbeu Korce 5-2 on aggregate.
