Fufa Big League side Wakiso Giants/ Kamuli Park defeated Police FC 1-0 in an entertaining pre-season friendly at Kyabagu Sports Stadium, Wakisha Resource Centre.
Sharif Ziraaba’s strike five minutes into the second half was the difference as both sides impressed the crowds.
Ashraf ‘Fadiga’ Bamuturaki, Samuel Kayongo, Shakur Makeera and Ruben Kimera were dominant in the midfield for the Cops with some crisp passing but the trio of Ayub Kisaliita, Feni Ali and AbdulKarim Kasule in the hosts’ midfield surpassed.
Fadiga tested the hosts goalkeeper early on with a connection off Kimera high ball while Ojik also had some few attempts for the Cops in the first half.
At the other end, Kasule, Feni and Ziraaba asked questions but were dealt well with as the two sides settled for a goalless score line at half time.
Ibrahim Kirya (Wakiso Giants):
“It was a good game against a well-oiled side. The most important positive away from the result is that we kept a clean sheet against a very good attacking team.
Abdallah Mubiru (Police FC):
“We created some good chances in the first half but weren’t effective. In the second half, we didn’t create as much but were in control of the game for most parts of the game. We can do better and I have no doubt in the team I have.
