Retired footballer Ibrahim Sekagya has revealed his best eleven of Ugandan footballers he played with at either club or national level.

The team which mostly has members of the 1997 KCC FC league winning side and the All Africa Games finalists was revealed by the ex-Cranes Captain in an interview with the FUFA Monthly Newsletter for February.

Sekagya named former Express FC, Uganda Kobs and Cranes custodian Sam Kawalya as his best goalkeeper.

The two played a number of games together with the Uganda Kobs including the finals in South Africa in 1999 where the side finished fourth.

At the back, Sekagya went for former SC Villa defenders Arthur Byansiima and Nestroy Kizito who he played with Uganda Kobs and Uganda Cranes respectively.

Byansiima was part of the backline that featured at the All Africa Games while Kizito played with Sekagya at Uganda Cranes and the two retired after the 2012 AFCON failed campaign.

Others in defence are former St. Henry’s Kitovu SS and KCC FC defender Derrick Muyanja, 1999 Uganda Kobs skipper Andy Lule and the versatile Lawrence Musoke.

In midfield, Jackson ‘Mia Mia’ Mayanja leads a wealth of talent that includes David Obua, Baker Mbowa and Jamil Kyambadde.

Only Obua amongst the quartet never played at KCC FC but shared the dressing room with Sekagya at national level.

Andrew ‘Fimbo’ Mukasa is the only natural centre forward in Sekagya’s XI though he only played with him for a few games mostly with Uganda Kobs.  

The Team: Sam Kawalya, Lawrence Musoke, Nestroy Kizito, Andy Lule, Arthur Byansiima, Derrick Muyanja, Jackson Mayanja, Baker Mbowa, Willy Kyambadde, Andrew Mukasa and David Obua.
