Sand Cranes midfielder Lukooya Baker admits that they still have a lot to do despite defeating Tanzania in their second game at the 2021 AFCON Beach Soccer finals.
Uganda who had lost in the first game to Senegal, responded with a 4-3 victory against their East African neighbours in a game that was a must win.
The points earned mean Uganda will hope for Senegal to take care of Tanzania so as to reach the semi finals of the competition.
Speaking after the game, Lukooya noted that their is still work to do as they wait on the results between Senegal and Tanzania.
“There is still more work to do, today’s game was a stepping stone.
“We are still waiting for the result between Senegal and Tanzania to see whether we can advance to the semi final.”
Lukooya adds that they were anxious for the win since it was a derby or sorts.
“We needed to win today’s game because it’s an East African derby so we needed to defeat our neighbours to be comfortable in the camp.
“So every Ugandan should be expectant of good results in our next games.”
If the Sand Cranes progress to the last four, they will be back in action on Friday 28th May.
The final will be played the next day, May 29, along with third place play-off.
The two finalists will qualify for the 2021 FIFA Beach soccer world cup.
