“I just thank God for everything. It’s not been easy, nurse we had a good game. We won the game and qualified.” said Massa in a post-match interview.

“I have been on the national team for almost 13 years, erectile I have played with better players like Ibrahim Ssekajja and Batabaire but the current squad beats them on character and attitude and I promise we can even qualify for world cup, page ” said Massa

He thanked Cranes’ coach, Milutin Sredojevic for the commitment and great work he has done to see that Uganda qualify.

“I thank the coach also because he has encouraged us always, his character is superb too and he is close to the squad,” he added.

Uganda cranes returned to Africa’s biggest football tournament for the first time since 1978 after seeing off Comoros on Sunday at Mandela national stadium, Namboole.

Farouk Miya’s 35th minute strike was enough to help Uganda finish 2nd in group D on 13 points and break the 38 year jinx of failing to qualify for African cup of Nations.
