- Kukesi 0-1 KF Tirana
Ugandan internationals Tonny Mawejje and Yunus Sentamu began the new season with a triumph in the Albania Super Cup as KF Tirana won 1-0 against Kukesi.
In a game both teams finished with a man less, the Albania Cup winners needed a late strike from Erion Hoxhallari in the 90th minute at Stadium Selman Stermasi.
Mawejje who completed a move to the side late last month made his debut donning shirt number 20 and so did Sentamu who on a number of occasions tested the opponents’ goalie but unfortunately couldn’t get on the score sheet.
Kukesi are the reigning league champions in Albania while KF Tirana play in the nation’s second tier after being relegated last season.
They open their new season with a Cup game on Wednesday September 13 against Besa Kavaje before they start the journey for a return to the top division with IIiria Fushe-Kruje three days later.
