Uganda are actually second by virtue of most goals scored – Morley Byekwaso’s troops have scored 6 goals, one less than Sudan.

“We have improved a great deal than our first game. I know with time, we shall continue to gel with as I also get more acquitted to the team,” noted Byekwaso after beating Djibouti 5-1.

Mohamed Abbas Namir, Shihab Eldeen Siddiq Abdalrahman and Musab Kurdman Elfaki will be pillars for Sudan while Uganda will bank on Sadat Anaku, Steven Sserwadda, Ivan Bogere, Isma Mugulusi for goals.
