I must say am delighted with the result a draw against a Cranes side with players playing professional football is worth celebrating and more so being able to create more chances than them. So I think the Ugandan game is in the right direction.


The boys followed our game plan, and I would urge the national team coach and technical staff to look out for some talented young stars in the lower league and give them chance at national team. Now a boy like Marvin is such an enterprising talent, his quality, the way he posses the ball, I think he deserves to be there as well.
