Saturday result (first leg)

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.

That’s eight goals in two successive international games for Uganda Cranes, having beaten South Sudan 5-1 weeks back in the same competition.

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.

A grey sky emphasized the mood of gloom and doom that hang over the visitors as Derrick Nsibambi stretched Uganda’s lead 13 minutes into the second half with the eventual winning goal.

The final whistle was met by celebrations from the home crowd and players. But the celebrations that stood out were by coaches Basena and Kajoba to mark a successful start at the helm.
