Ugandan players in Diaspora: Lubega, Luwagga on target as Bbakka returns from injury lay off

It was another action packed weekend for a couple of Ugandan footballers in the diaspora.

Most of the players earned the valuable playing time with some on target as the post COVID-19 era continues for football (behind closed doors) in many countries.

Ugandan footballers based in Estonia, Czech Republic, Sweden, Denmark, Egypt and South Africa all featured in the different matches.

Striker Edrisa “Torres” Lubega’s scoring prowess continued in the Estonia Meistrilliga league.

The scoring ace netted his eleventh goal of the season from fifteen games as Paide Linammeskond condemned Kuressare 4-0 on the road.

During the Israel Toto Cup, William Luwagga Kizito’s 40th minute strike wasn’t enough to save Hapoel Kfar Saba from defeat as they lost 2-1 at Bnei Yehuda to finish in 8th place.

Elsewhere, defender Timothy Awany featured while new boy Fahad Bayo did not as Ashdod FC fell 2-0 on the road to Kiryat Shmona in the Israel Toto Cup.

It was good news to David Alexis Bbakka and his Swedish club Umea as the forward returned from a long injury lay off.
