Yesterday evening, the Uganda cranes took on the Pharaohs of Egypt in a mouth watering clash. Despite boasting the game and having a superb display, the Cranes were unable to convert their over 16 attempts on goal. Egypt on the other hand converted 2 chances to lead 2-0 at Halftime.
“The result of this game is not a true reflection of what transpired” a Supersport commentator noted at the end of the game.
The Cranes indeed put up a superb display of football. It was indeed unlucky that we lost the tie against Egypt.
However, despite the loss, the Cranes have qualified for the Round of 16 after emerging 2nd in Group A. This was after the DRC beat Zimbabwe 4-0.
