Sentamu Sent off as KF Tirana Bow out of Europa

UEFA Europa qualifiers (First round)

Return leg

KF Tirana 0-3 Maccabi Tel Aviv

Maccabi Tel Aviv advance 5-0 on aggregate

Ugandan Cranes striker Yunus Sentamu had a horrible outing as his team KF Tirana were knocked out of the UEFA Europa qualifiers.

Sentamu who was playing just his second game was sent off as KF Tirana lost 3-0 to Maccabi Tel Aviv on Thursday.

After losing the first leg in Israel 2-0, the Albanian side needed to win by atleast a three goal margin to overhaul the result, however this did not happen.

Sentamu was shown marching orders in the 44th minute after an off the ball incident on former Chelsea defender Tal Ben Haim.


KF Tirana played the rest of the game with 10 men and the visitors used the opportunity to break them down.

Goals from Aaron Schoenfield (49th minute), Barak Itzhaki(80th) and Avi Riken(86th) ensured Maccabi Tel Aviv secured a win on the road and advanced to second qualifying round 5-0 on aggregate.
