Uganda Cranes’ chances of qualifying for the AFCON 2015 finals in Morocco suffered a big blow after losing yet another game to Togo in Lome.
Like it was at Namboole on Saturday, The Sparrow Hawks needed a solitary Serge Akakpo goal to take all three points.
Kawowo Sports’ Ismael Kiyonga rates each Cranes player that feature at Stade de Kegue. The rating is based on statistics and personal observation.
Denis Onyango 6.5: Made key saves in the first half to keep the hosts at bay. Had nothing to do with a goal he conceded as his defenders gave Akakpo so much space.
Denis Iguma 5.0: He stood still against Togo’s attackers who targeted him especially in the first half.
Godfrey Walusimbi 5.0: Fouled for a free kick from which Togo scored but otherwise, he did well both on the offensive and defensive.
Isaac Isinde 6.5: Preferred in the absence of skipper Andrew Mwesigwa and didn’t disappoint. He however gave so much space to Akakpo for Togo’s winner.
Savio Kabugo 6.5: Only featured after passing a late fitness test but did well. His game reading was also fine but should have done better to defend the dead ball which led to the goal.
Geoffrey Kizito 7.0: He gave much cover to the backline and ventured forward when need arises. Unlucky to miss on the score sheet as his dipping shot was well saved by Togo goalie.
Aucho Khalid 5.0: Another silent outing for the Tusker FC midfielder. No wonder he was replaced later in the second half. He however made a goal line clearance to keep Cranes in the game.
Tonny Mawejje 7.0: The Valur FC midfield maestro had a good game in the centre of the pack. His passing was fine and also linked the striking force with defence well.
Brian Umony 5.0: Started ahead of Oloya as Massa’s partner upfront but there was little supply for him to test the Togo backline.
Geoffrey Massa 5.0: Played in an unfamiliar role playing behind Umony in attack but still failed to enough service. He however joined in to help defend when the Cranes were pinned back.
Luwagga Kizito 5.0: Good with the ball, Luwagga found himself doing more defending than creating as Togo consistently attacked Uganda Cranes.
Moses Oloya 4.0: Came on in the second half but did little to force a result.
Brian Majwega 5.0: Missed the most glorious chance of the game with the goal keeper at his mercy.
Daniel Sserunkuma 5.0: Came onfor the last quarter of the game and almost netted an equaliser but his shot hit the side net.
