The striker, who has not netted for the Cranes in two years despite kicking off his national career on high – netting eight times in as many opening matches – went into that Zambia clash having recovered from a hip injury.

And he is glad to have come off the set-back and is now ready to reclaim his former self. “I think I’ve been working hard towards that,” the striker told in an interview.

“It’s been a process, working harder, gaining fitness and polishing the finishing. Of course as a striker you feel the pressure when the goals are not coming. It happens to all strikers.

“But you keep your head up, put in a lot of work and once you score one, the rest fall in place.”

Umony, who is on a short-term loan with his former club KCCA as he awaits the resumption of the Vietnam league, where he features for Binh Duong, is now mulling over nicking up another club and playing in Cecafa that starts next month in Kampala.

“Right now I want to be ready for any challenge, including Cecafa,” he said, “I’m not ruling it out but I’m not sure I will play. Around that time I will be up and about finalizing things on my club career.”
