Uganda Cranes coach Jonathan Mckinstry made a good analysis of Farouk Miya’s opening goal as Konyaspor beat Turkish Premier League leaders Instabul 4-3 on Monday night.
Mckinstry has heaped praise on Miya for his work rate and contribution in the build up, and asked young Ugandan 10s to take note.
On the night, Miya scored two incredible goals – a leveller after Instabul had taken the lead and another beauty at the stroke of halftime to lead 3-1.
In the first goal, Miya makes a run into the box and was at the end of a cross which he drilled into the roof of the net with both of his feet above the ground.
“Very important though to see the ‘big picture’ and not only the great finish. Especially for his first effort,” Mckinstry said. “Decisions by Miya in build up were key to creating the goal scoring chance.”
“Miya’s patience and movement in the early stages of the build-up play caused opposition defenders important problems and helped to create the space for him to have positive influence when he received the ball.
“Having set up the attacking opportunity for the team, Miya’s timing & speed of movement entering the box were key in creating a goal scoring opportunity.
“There is so much more to this goal than the few seconds around the finish. Young Ugandan #10s should take notice.”

Miya’s second was a beautiful volley that was built on his quick control and swift turn.
Instabul staged a fight back with Demba Ba picking one of the goals, but Miya’s Konyaspor squeezed in a later winner.
