Uganda's African cup qualification turns mathmatical

Uganda will have to endure another month of waiting before they know whether they have broken the 34-year absence from Nations Cup.

Bobby Williamsonís side were whacked by a hungrier Angolan side at the 50, 000 capacity November 11 Stadium in Luanda on Sunday as the hosts ran out 2-0 winners. Experienced striker Flavio Amado, a second half substitute, capitalised on a mix-up in the Ugandan back line to beat goalkeeper Dennis Onyango from a seemingly offside position on 78 minutes.

Manucho Goncalves had earlier on 56 minutes headed the hosts in front when dangerman Abel Djalma Campos crossed from the right, the wing he bossed for the entire game.

The loss was a bitter pill to swallow as the Angolans breached Ugandaís goal first time in five games this campaign. The win moves Angola to nine points, with Uganda staying on 10. Uganda now have to beat Kenya on October 8 to be sure of a place at next yearís Nations Cup in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.

Djalma was a nightmare for the usually dependable Nestroy Kizito while Amandio da Costa gave Simeon Masaba a puzzle at right back. The more bad news for Uganda is defender Andy Mwesigwa will miss the groupís deciding game in Kampala after card-happy Moroccan referee El Ahrach Bouchaib booked him for bringing down da Costa illegally.

Joseph Kabagambe, who came off for Vincent Kayizzi, and Tonny Mawejje, off for Hamis Kiiza in the second half, and Kizito were also booked for Uganda.

Uganda were largely on the backfoot with no bait going forward. David Obua was again below par and was replaced by Geoffrey Sserunkuma early in the second half. Striker Geoffrey Massa ran tirelessly but did not have a shot at goal. Anyway, Ugandaís only shot at goal was way wide from Musa Mudde in the second half.

Mawejje and Mudde laboured to impose themselves in a midfield bossed by Angola skipper Andre Macanga while Kabagambeís usual crosses failed to yield. Onyango, who had taken 360 minutes without conceding in four games, had little to do with the well taken goals. But itís not all lost.

Uganda can make the fortress that is Namboole pay its usual dividends when they face Kenya, but it is a delicately poised affair.
