Uganda Kobs thumps Kenya 5-1

Uganda Kobs enlightened their changes of qualifying for the 2011 All Africa Games in Maputo, Mozambique after thumping  their zone V group mates Kenya 5-1 in the first leg of the Games qualifiers in Nairobi yesterday. .

Kobs' lead striker Hamis Kiiza notched a brace, scoring the first and fifth goals of the match played at Nyayo Stadium.

Kiiza, who joined the teamís training for only two days after finalising his move to Tanzanian giants Simba, gave a good account of himself when he tapped in a pass from Moses Oloya 30 minutes after kick off.

The hosts however did not sit back and relax as  Moses Alita, chipped the ball over Kobs advancing goalkeeper Ali Kimera making it 1-1 at half time

The Kobs then restored parity with a second on 55 minutes after Kenyan defender Hamphrey Ochieng diverted Habib Kavumaís corner into his own net.

From then on, the Kobs were unstoppable and found the third goal after Mike Mutyaba had been fouled in the box.

Mutyaba picked himself up and converted the resultant penalty on 60 minutes.

The hosts had struggled to contain Oloya, who yet again had an assist in the fourth goal. Oloya released Emmanuel Okwi with a wonderful pass and the Tanzania-based striker simply placed the ball into the net with the Kenyan defence static.

Kiiza then returned to silence the expectant Kenyan fans with a 78th minute goal after volleying home a rebound of a ball that had hit the post.

Kenyan striker Paul Were, who had promised the fall of Uganda prior to the game, was just as his teammates, left devastated as the Kobs took control of this first leg match.

There were several Ugandan fans that attended the game, blowing their vuvuzelas even out of Nyayo Stadium and into the streets of Nairobi.

Kobs assistant coach George Nsimbe said soon after the match that: "This is the future of Uganda Cranes. They played according to plan." The team returns this morning.

Uganda joins South Africa and Nigeria in moving closure to Maputo after wins over the weekend while holders Cameroon lost 1-0 to DR Congo in Kinshasa.

The team:
A.Kimera, S.Mpiima, H.Kavuma, D.Iguma, R.Sseku, O.Kasule (S.Mbaziira), M.Mutyaba (P.Ssenfuka), J.Sadam, H.Kiiza, E.Okwi (G.Kizito), M.Oloya.
