AFCON:The Cranes fall against the Black Stars

AFCON 2017

GHANA (1) VS UGANDA (0)

Stage flight is one of the key points to note from Coach Mitcho’s post match press briefing, with 5 middle fielders and one striker commonly known as a target man in Massa.

It was clear from the start that uganda was to sit back and play counter attack football, this was practical from the first minute of the game with ghana launching attack after attack on uganda cranes goal, the no1 goal keeper onvtje continent lived up to his expectations with several saves from Man of the match Ghanas Christian Atsu.

But the only goal of the game came not from the several attacks but an Avoidable mistake at the back by one of the most experinced defender in the squad isaac isinde..in second half an immediate introduction of Moses Oloya for Azira Micheal was a clear indication that uganda was going for glory,

We did everything risked 5 strikers with only two middle fielders and 3 at the back but still did not score,

mitcho pointed out in the press briefing after the game.

Uganda is to play a highly rated Egypt in its next game and if the cranes are to get any postive results they must avoid to many mistakes in the middle field and at the back.

Uganda was missing two of its starters In the names of Aucho Khalid and Murishid Juko both on suspension.

With the introduction of the two some of the mistakes can be avoided but most importantly get more time for young players like shaban and Awanyi, yunusi and less time to the old fox like Mawejje and Massa.

Positives taken from the tie is Uganda finished the dominant team as seen from the stats below.
