Uganda Cranes interim coach Moses Basena has all reasons to smile

David Isabirye August 12, 20175:02 pm

Going by the opening 45 minutes of the game, Uganda Cranes has been in splendid form. Freely inter-passing the ball from the back through the midfield to the forwards. 2 goals up inside 30 minutes gave the home side confidence. Midfielders Moses Waiswa, Shafiq Kagimu, Milton Karisa and Muzamiru Mutyaba who is playing in a more advanced role have so far had a good time. The worry lines are with the 3 yellow cards picked to Bernard Muwanga, Savio Kabugo and the goalkeeper Ismael Watenga. This means, the entire team will play a more cautious game in the next 45 minutes. One more goal will be good enough to kill off the Rwandese
