It was a replica of the 2011 AFCON qualifiers game at Namboole on Tuesday as Uganda Cranes were held to a goalless draw by Kenya’s Harambee stars.

Unlike in 2011 where the hosts were playing their do or die game that they needed to win in order to qualify for the AFCON finals, medications http://cyberstudio.biz/main/components/com_easyblog/helpers/album.php this time round it was only a friendly game with nothing much to fight for but only meant to test and strengthen of both sides as they prepare for their last games in the previous groups.

It was not such a busy day for both goal keepers but the visitors presented more threat to the goal than the Cranes.

Kenya who dominated most of the second half, http://crfg.org/wp-includes/class-wp-site.php however had nothing to show in terms of goals at the end of the dull game at Mandela National Stadium, http://clipvoice.it/administrator/components/com_checkin/views/checkin/view.html.php Namboole Tuesday evening.
