Uganda Cranes crash to Algeria in CHAN

Algeria found no diffuculty in defeating  9-men Uganda Cranes 2-0 in the Orange Championship of Nations Group A match played in Khartoum, Sudan, on Saturday.

The Cranes finished the match with 9-man after Owen Kasule and Tonny Odur were given their marching orders in the second half.

Despite the numerical disadvantage to the Cranes, the Algerians had been dominant from the first whistle anyway, and were deserving winners.

Djabou’s 17th minute goal and Soudan’s 61st minute goal were instrumental in making the Algerians triumphant in their   bid to win the CHAN trophy sponsored by  Orange telecom company

Uganda cranes’ Kasule and Odur were expelled  from the match after receiving red cards due to rough tackles to the tactically superior Algrian players in the 54th and 68th minute respectively

The Cranes played without their senior players Dan Wagaluka and Godfrey Walusimbi who were very instrumental in the Nile Basin Tournament in Egypt after they left  for greener pastures outside the county.

The Cranes captain Simon Masaba missed the opening match  due to a red card received during the CHAN qualifiers.

The Cranes coach Sir Williamson said his side played the best but was only let down by the two red cards.

Meanwhile, in the other Group A match, the hosts Sudan defeated Gabon 1-0 in the opening match in Khartoum.

The next matches on Tuesday February 8th will see the Cranes taking on the hosts Sudan, while Algeria will battle it out with Gabon, in the capital Khartoum.
