Uganda Cranes 4-1 KCCA FC
A star studded Uganda Cranes team demolished Mike Mutebi’s KCCA FC with a 4-1 victory in a friendly match played at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
Farouk Miya, Emmanuel Okwi, Muzamir Mutyaba and Paul Mucureezi scored the 4 goals for Uganda Cranes in a dominating performance with the former missing from the spot earlier in the first half.
A.S Tijani scored for KCCA FC who were coming into this encounter at the back of a one goal draw against APR SC in Nyamirambo Stadium in Kigali.
It should be noted that goal-scorer, Tijani is not officially confirmed as a KCCA FC player as he is still on trials with the club.
Cranes interim Coach, Moses Basena who used two different lineups in the first and second half, said:
“It has been a good performance from the boys today. It is a show I want them to put up against Egypt who we will be playing at home in a World Cup qualifier.”
“We have prepared well, everything is going on plan and I hope that each of my players plays at his very best,” he added.
Denis Onyango, Geoffrey Sserunkuma, Godfrey Walusimbi are all in the camp; Godfrey Baba Kizito and William Kizito Luwagga are expected to arrive in the country today Tuesday.
