World Cup qualifier. The Cranes have delivered the perfect Independence gift to Uganda with this double over Rwanda.

They now face Kenya on November 11 before what could be a group decider against Mali three days later

6/10. Charles Lukwago. Made a couple of comfortable saves from long range effort but another largely uneventful game. Another clean sheet. 

6/10. Dennis Guma. Not put under much pressure by the Rwanda attackers.

6/10. Aziz Kayondo. A full senior debut for the under-20 graduate in which he acquitted himself well.

8/10. Enock Walusimbi. He has slotted seamlessly into the Cranes and is now the central defender with the most minutes in a backline that is yet to concede a goal.


8/10. Timothy Awany. Would probably still have kept that Rwandan attack in check if he had played on with the injury that forced him off. He was that dominant. 

7/10. Taddeo Lwanga. A typical patrol day for the Cranes anchorman. Breaking up play, initiating attacks and hurrying opponents.

6/10.Bobosi Byaruhanga. More visible in helping maintain the team’s defensive shape rather than go forward.

5/10. Moses Waiswa. A slightly better performance from the previous game but should still assist the team more. 

8/10. Fahad Bayo. Has given the Cranes a healthy return of maximum points from two games yet he is feeding on crumbs. Lots of off the ball work.

5.5/10. Steven Mukwala. Has managed to get the attention off strike partner Bayo by running the channels and stretching defences with his pace. Calm infront of goal.

7/10. Isaac Muleme. Has suddenly assumed the creator in chief role for the Cranes.

6/10.Coach Micho. A return of eight points from 12 a available shows he is managing the team’s transition well.

Ibrahim Orit    5/10
Yunus Sentamu    5/10
Martin Kizza    5.5/10
Shafik Kagimu    None
Livingstone Mulondo    None
