The Cranes shared the spoils with the Flames of Malawi in a goal-less stalemate played at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

Mugabi expressed delight with the clean sheet, but again, in equal measure portrayed agony with the goal-less draw.

After the game, Mugabi using his official twitter handle, stated;

Nice way to finish camp with a clean sheet! Shame we couldn’t push for the goal in the end!

Thank you once again for the warm welcoming.

The Yeovil Town defender earned his first cap in national colours against West African island nation, Sao Tome and Principe during the 3-1 victory in which he played 88 minutes before being replaced by KCCA’s Timothy Awany.

Born in Harrow City in the United Kingdom, Mugabi was born to Ugandan parents – Tony Mugabi and Mary Nabulya.

He has previously played in the Fulham and Southampton youth teams.
