Taifa Stars midfielder Himid Mao believes getting a point off Uganda Cranes at Namboole is a big boost in their campaign to reach the Afcon finals in Cameroon next year.

“We just wanted to avoid a loss here,” said Mao. “It was a tough game but good we achieved our objective,” he added.

“It’s a point we can build on for the next games if we are to achieve our dream. Not many teams pick a point at Namboole but we did.

The Egypt based midfielder started on the bench with Emmanuel Amunike preferring Frank Raymond Domayo.

“The coach picked the best team for the game. And the condition of the pitch was also not so good for my game but the most important was team.”
