CHAN: KCCA Hold Uganda Cranes In Practice Match

Wednesday, October 16
*Uganda 0-0 KCCA FC

Uganda Cranes CHAN-bound team and KCCA FC played a goalless draw in a friendly game played at StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo.

The Cranes coach in charge of the team Abdallah Mubiru used the friendly to test his players ahead of their CHAN encounter against Burundi.

Uganda, who won the reverse fixture 3-0 in Bujumbura, will play host to Burundi in he return leg at Lugogo this Saturday.

In the friendly, Coach Mubiru used almost two different teams, each playing a half.

It was a dull encounter with less scoring opportunities, a game that revealed more work for coach Abdallah but he will be happy for his defence for keeping KCCA attackers Erisa Ssekisambu, Simon Sserunkuma and John Odumegwu at bay.

Saidi Kyeyune had his effort punched away by KCCA custodian Jamil Malyamungu in the 25th minute before Shafic Kagimu and Allan Kayiwa came on for Mike Mutyaba and Ibrahim Oriti respectively.

KCCA FC looked a better side in the second half quarter but Nigeria’s Odumegwu tapped over the Ssekisambu’s cross at the hour mark.

In the last minutes of the dull encounter played on a cold evening, Viane Ssekajugo beat KCCA FC defence but his shot hit the side net.

Vipers youngster Abdul Karim Watambala had a chance to showcase his work to the coaches when he replaced Kirizestom Ntambi.
