Uganda Cranes’ striker Patrick Kaddu opened his account for Ismaily FC in a league game against Allan Kyambadde’s El Gouna.
Kaddu, on loan from RS Berkene, scored in the 73rd minute but a late equaliser from DR Congo’s Walter Bwalya saw the sides share spoils on Monday.
Kaddu was at the end of a good cross from Ahmed Madbouly which he finished with a fine volley and sealed the strike with his trademark ‘monkey’ dance celebration at the corner flag.

He had earlier scored in the 54th minute but his goal was cancelled for offside, a decision which stood even after VAR.
The match at Al-Ismailia stadium, was played under closed doors.
Uganda’s midfielder Allan Kyambadde played 46 minutes before he was taken off.
Kaddu’s goal will come as a relief for the striker who was ignored by Jonathan Mckinstry recently when summoning the team for AFCON double header against South Sudan.
He will hope to extend his new form when Ismaily visit Raja Casablanca in the second leg of the Arab Club championship at Mohamed V Stadium.
Ismaily lead the tie 1-0 and the return leg will be played under closed doors due to Corona virus threat.
In the league, Kaddu’s side is ninth on the log with 22 points.
