10 men Uganda Kobs crush Tanzania in All_Africa qualifiers

Uganda's Under 23 team, the Kobs advanced to next round of the Zone five region for the All-Africa Games due in September in Maputo, Mozambique after crushing Tanzania’s Manyara Stars 3-1 at Tanzanian National Stadium in Dar es Salaam.

The Kobs' victory is the latest in a series of positive results Ugandan national teams secured over their rivals in the East and Central region in recent times.

URA’s goal machine "Diego" Hamis Kiiza netted twice and Bunamwaya star Saddam Juma sealed the Kobs Victory away from home at the 60000 seater Stadium, which was filled to capacity.

However, despite holding a 4-1 first leg lead, Eritrea failed to travel for the return leg yesterday in Nairobi. After the senior team Cranes edged Kenya for a slot at the Africa Nations Championship last year - that result came on the back of a couple of dominant performances in Cecafa over the Harambee Stars, Kobs will boast a physchological advantage over their neighbours.

Cranes are also top of group J in the Africa Nations Cup qualifiers with 7 points, three better than second placed Kenya.

"This side has what it takes to reach Maputo," said coach George Ssemwogerere after the match.

 "It’s a balanced side with lots of maturity at a tender age,"  Ssemwogerere added.

The decision to include league leading scorer Hamis Kiiza has proved a masterstroke. The URA striker grabbed three goals over the two legs and proved hot to handle for the Tanzanians.

Midfielder Owen Kasule, Mike Mutyaba, full back Godfrey Walusimbi and striker Emma Okwi have also proved key additions.
