The former Entebbe Young goalkeeper who was a darling at Mbale based Nabumali High School back in the days revealed;

We played like champions right from the group matches through to the knock out stage with no goal conceded and entertaining football.

The players have been training well for more than a month with a couple of friendly matches.

We deserved this victory as our target remains one – to represent Entebbe zone at the national finals once again.
