In the first
half, the national team was wasteful.

On form Juma
Balinya had a half volley inside the area blocked for a corner kick, Julius
Poloto completely mis-kicked Balinya’s grounder before Godfrey Walusimbi’s goal
bound shot was whisked off the line by Sadat Mukwaya.

The trial
match was a test majorly for the home based players as part of the national
team’s preparations for the up-coming AFCON 2019 group L qualifier against
Tanzania next Sunday.

Following a
goal-less first half, the match came to life with the introduction of Maroons’
winger Brian Majwega at the on-start of the second half.

Majwega, who
had replaced Police Juma Balinya set up Sserunkuma for the opener on 57
minutes.

Six minutes
ahead, Okello converted with his customary curl far the goalkeeper’s right from
20 yards.

The match was a good test for the national team. We tried to create chances right from the first half and managed to kill off the game in the second half. This has been good fighting spirit. We travel to Egypt for the training camp opportunity for more bonding and assessing of players. We shall have a friendly match on Wednesday before traveling for Tanzania game.
