Onyango turns heroe as Cranes dumps Sudan

Uganda 0 (3) Sudan 0 (2)

CEO, Edgar Watson watched the game and says the LG Cup was a big opportunity for Uganda

Cranes goal keeper Denis Onyango turned a heroe Sunday evening  when he saved three penalties and converted a winner as Uganda dumped CAN bound Sudan 3-2 in their last LG Cup match in Morocco.

The 90 minutes had ended in a goalless draw with both teams putting several obvious chances to waste. Defenders Isaac Isinde and Walusimbi Godfrey converted their penalties as strikers Emmanuel Okwi and Moses Oloya wasted their chances. Okwi’s shot hit the bar while Oloya had his turn well saved by the Sudanese goal keeper.

It was after the two misses that the Sundown’s custodian, Onyango stepped forward to convert Uganda’s fifth chance that earned the Cranes a 3-2 win.

FUFA CEO, Edgar Watson who traveled with the team to Morocco said the tournament had provided an opportunity for  Uganda to play two respectable teams, Morocco and Sudan. Edgar further added that the Cranes had played well in both games.

The results put Uganda at the top of the Four-Nation tournament but before Cameroon played hosts Morocco in their last game later in the night. The winner of this tournament takes home U$ 60.000. The first runners up gets U$ 30.000 while the third and the fourth teams return home with U$ 20.000 and U$ 10.000 respectively.
