Sofapaka striker Umaru Kasumba is not bothered by his omission from the Uganda Cranes squads that will take part in the 2019 Total African Cup of Nations and Cosafa tournaments.
Despite his fine run with Batoto Ba Mungu in the Kenyan Premier League this season, the speedy forward was once again overlooked by coach Sebastien Desabre when he released his two squads weeks ago.
Kasumba has won two monthly awards in the Kenyan Premier League this season, matching the feat only achieved by Sony Sugar captain Enock Agwanda.
Speaking during his April award ceremony at Eastleigh Secondary School in Nairobi, an elated Kasumba said he believes he has done his best to earn a call-up but will remain patient after latest snub.
“I have done my part and it is upon selectors to see if I’m good enough for the national team or not. But I’m a patient man and if I’m not called then it means the time is not ripe for me,” Kasumba told www.football-256.com.
“Meanwhile that will not derail my ambitions to reach the top. I just need to keep doing my best and everything will come like this award,” he added.
Kasumba’s contract with Sofapaka expires this June and he has been linked with a move to Kenyan champions, Gor Mahia.
