International Friendly Match:
- Central African Republic 1-0 Uganda Cranes
Uganda Cranes vice-captain Hassan Wasswa Mawanda wants his teammates to rectify the mistakes they collectively made as they lost to Central African Republic ahead of the 2019 AFCON Qualifiers.
Wasswa, who turns out for El Geish Football Club in Egypt has the hope the final result will have an impact on how the team recovers.
We played well and dominated the game. However, we lost it because of one childish mistake. This is a wake up call before we take on Tanzania in the AFCON 2019 qualifiers. I believe we shall re-organize the house and play better against Niger in the second build up match coming up on Saturday.
Ralph Kottoy scored Central African Republic’s lone strike on the day towards the end of the first half and the Uganda Cranes never recovered.
Wasswa wore the arm band because team captain Dennis Onyango failed to travel in Niger on time.
We have to regroup and rectify our mistakes as a team before we take on Niger on Saturday. I know, we have the ability to do better. We pressed Central African Republic and they were on the back track most of the time in the match
The former Ajax Cape Town City, KCCA and Vipers midfielder started in a compact midfield alongside East Bengal midfielder Aucho Khalid who was later replaced by Austrian based striker Edrisa Lubega at the end of the match.
In the other changes, Romanian based winger William Luwagga Kizito took over Faruku Miya’s place and Vipers Milton Karisa came on for Yunus Sentamu.
Isaac Muleme, a left back based in Egypt with Assiouty replaced Cape Town City’s Allan “Dancing Rasta” Kateregga.
