Uganda Cranes coach Abdallah Mubiru was left with an egg in the face following his side’s loss to Lesotho on Saturday at the on going COSAFA Cup in Durban, South Africa.
Uganda lost 3-2 on penalties after a barren stalemate in normal time to bow out of the championship at the quarterfinal stage played at the Princess Magogo Stadium on Saturday evening.
Mubiru who believes the Cranes had a good game put the blame on the wasted chances from the created opportunities and lack of concentration during the penalty shootouts.
“It was a good game and I congratulate our opponents they played well,” Mubiru said in the post match interview before adding.
“We tried to create some chances but misused them and then we didn’t concetrate well in the penalty shootouts.”
The Cranes missed a number of chances in both stanzas of the game with Daniel isiagi, Juma Balinya and second half substitute Daniel Mzee Sserunkuma the notable culprits.
It was in the shootout that things went from bad to worse, Mustafa Kizza, John Revita and Paul Mucureezi missed their efforts from 12 yards. Only Muzamir Mutyaba and Balinya converted theirs.
