Uganda Cranes Edge KCCA FC in practice match
Uganda Cranes registered a 2-1 win against KCCA FC in a practice match played at the MTN Omondi Stadium in Lugogo, Kampala on Thursday.
Denis Iguma and Milton Karisa scored the two goals for Cranes in either halves respectively while Charles Lwaga found the back of the net for the Kasasiro Boys.
Iguma dived to head in from a distance a well calculated Julius Poloto corner on the right flag to give Uganda Cranes the lead after 21 minutes off the clock.
The hosts equalized in the 33rd minute when Lwanga shot from a distance for custodian Alionzi Nafian to only pick the ball from the net.
It was not until the 88th minute when Karisa sprinted past experienced custodian Benjamin Ochan to tap in an empty net which separated the two sides.
“Playing against KCCA FC has put us in a position of having a perfect replacement for an international friendly because of the the extra 12th player which KCCA had thus limiting the space which pushed our players to think first,” Micho said after the game.
“We are planning for another friendly on Sunday and after that we shall start concentrating more on that game against Rwanda,” he added.
Uganda Cranes is preparing for a crucial double-header encounter against Rwanda in the 2020 FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
