AFCON U20: Uganda Suffer Set Back After Loss To Cameroon

Wednesday, February 17
*Cameroon 1-0 Uganda

Uganda Hippos suffered a 1-0 defeat to Cameroon at the ongoing AFCON U20 Championship in Mauritania.

Junior Sunday Jang scored the only goal of the game in a match where the Hippos missed some good chances.

Junior Sunday, who scored in the 1-0 win against Mauritania, headed in from a corner in the 32nd minute.

Derrick Kakooza had a chance to level matters but headed out while Richard Basangwa fired off the mark.

Earlier, Basangwa failed a keeper to beat opportunity when he ran onto a chipped pass only for his looped effort to go over the keeper and goal posts.

Kenneth Ssemakula headed over the bar from the corner.
