U20: Uganda wallops Mozambique 4-0

The victorious Hippos who walloped Mozambique 4-0

Uganda U20 National team, the Hippos out smarted visiting counterparts from Mozambique walloping them 4-0 in the first leg of the Africa U20 youth championship played in Kampala on Saturday.

Yayo Lutimba (Express FC) scored the fastest goal in his football career that came only 30 seconds after kick off to send the youthful home boys into wild celebrations. Ssekisambu Erisa who also features for Express FC netted twice before William Wadri (Proline FC) sealed the deal nine minutes to break time.

Mozambique looked disunited throughout the first half but the Germany coach Angels Gert Josef seem to have taken note of their mistakes, corrected them and his side returned to pitch a better side for the second half.  The last 45 minutes yielded no goal for either side.

“We needed a win and we have it. We shall base our next plans from there” said a visibly excited assistant coach Abdallah Mubiru shortly after the game.  Uganda travels to Mozambique in two weeks time and when they advance to the next round, they play Ghana.

For the Mozambican coach, Angels Gert, Ugandans should not celebrate yet. He has promised a tougher game in Maputo. “It’s a big loss but such results can still be reversed. Uganda has been a better side at home and we can still be better in Maputo” vowed Gert.
