Uganda 3 Rwanda 0
KITENDE – It was another goal fest as Uganda stuck one leg into the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) finals after a 3-0 first-leg home win over Rwanda on Saturday.

And it was a perfect start for coaches Moses Basena and Fred Kajoba in their first competitive game in full charge following the departure of predecessor Milutin Sredojević (Micho), who made his was back to South African side Orlando Pirates.
Muzamiru Mutyaba got Uganda off to a galloping start from the spot in the 15th minute before striking again 11 minutes later at the St. Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.
