Uganda Cranes interim coach Abdallah Mubiru has revealed he was pleased with his team’s showing after dispatching the side 4-1 in the second leg of their CHAN 2020 Qualifiers on Saturday at Lugogo.
The team won 7-2 on aggregate and will face the winner between South Sudan and Burundi who face off on Sunday at the StarTimes stadium, Lugogo.
“I am delighted with the both the performance and result,” said Mubiru.
“We were in control throughout and though we could have scored more, the most important thing was that we comfortably won,” he added.
Over two legs, Cranes scored five goals from set pieces; three penalties, a free kick and when asked whether it bothers him that the team didn’t score as many from open play, Mubiru said; “A goal is a goal and that’s what matters whether from open play or dead ball situation.
“And you only get chances from dead ball situations because you force opponents into giving them away.”
