Flying Cranes dump visiting Congo

The Uganda Cranes entered the pitch on Saturday afternoon with a task to score two unanswered goals against Congo in order to storm the next round of the Africa Cup of Nations 2013 qualifiers but proved more determined when they doubled the score to end the game 4-0!

Team Captain Andy Mwesigwa headed the opener in the first half before Godfrey Walusimbi converted a penalty in the early minutes of the second half. Geoffrey Massa went down in history when he took a heavy shot from the right flank that left the goal net torn. Emmanuel Okwi wound up the mission with a fourth goal that saw the Congolese technical bench filled in tears.

Cranes had lost 3-1 in Brazzaville in February.  Uganda will now wait to play two home and away matches against one of the 16 Nations that played in the Africa Cup of Nations in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
