Sam Ssimbwa in a talk session with the URA Football Club players

Uganda Cup – Round of 32: Wednesday, 12th February 2020

  • URA Vs Nyamityobora – Arena of Visions (4 PM)
  • Express Vs Maroons – Kavumba Recreational Stadium, Wakiso (4 PM)

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club head coach Sam Bamweyana Ssimbwa is well aware about the essence of winning all the matches at his disposal in the Uganda Cup.

With minimal chances in the Uganda Premier League of overtaking the leading pack of Vipers and KCCA, Ssimbwa knows that the only realistic chance of silverware this season is by winning the Uganda Cup.

After eliminating Lugazi Municipal 4-0 at the round of 64, URA takes on FUFA Big League side Nymityobora from Mbarara.

URA will look to the experienced legs of Shafiq Kuchi Kagimu, Saidi Kyeyune, goalkeeper Nafian Alionzi, Yeseri Waibi, Ashraf Mandela, Benjmain Nyakoojo, Joackim Ojera and Brian Majwega among others for magic.

Nyamityobora also has quite a number of tried and tested players led by former Uganda Cranes dancing winger Dan Wagaluka.

Nyamityobora made the grade after beating Chimpanzee 3-1 in a post-match penalty that followed a goal-less first 90 minutes of action at the Ntandi play-ground.

This will be one of the two games at the round of 32 lined up on Wednesday.

The other game will witness two top flight clubs; Express and Maroons lock horns at the Kavumba Recreational Stadium.

The winner of the Uganda Cup qualifies to represent Uganda at the CAF Confederation Cup.
