Uganda Cranes teenage midfielder Bright Anukani has described his experience at the 2019 COSAFA tournament in South Africa as a stepping stone in his fast growing career.
Talking exclusively to www.football-256.com from Durban, the soft-spoken silky midfielder asserted.
“It was a great moment for me as a player and indeed the experience here was a stepping stone in my career that will keep me working hard for better opportunities.”
“Playing in the same tournament with players I admired from childhood like Khama Billiat of Zimbabwe and playing against PSL stars just taught me that in football everything is possible when you believe and work hard,” added the Proline FC player.
Anukani came on in the 78th minute for Juma Balinya in the semi-final plate match against hosts South Africa to earn his first competitive debut in the famous black, yellow and red strip.
Anukani was one of the first timers in the Cranes at an international stage alongside Paul Willa, John Revita, Allan Kayiwa and Nicholas Kasozi.
The 2018/2019 FUFA Big League most valuable player will hope that the coaches keep him their plans ahead of the 2020 African Nations of Championship (CHAN) that will start in August 2019.
