It’s every athlete’s dream to represent his or her nation due to the pride that comes with the occasion.
In the same spirit, BUL FC forward Karim Ndugwa’s dream to play for the Uganda Cranes is so much still alive to date.
“I am yearning to play for the Uganda Cranes once again,” Ndugwa told Football256 before adding; “I am doing all it takes to see that I reach the required standards.”
“I have been on the National team before. The demands are high but it all goes down to the head coach and how he wants the team to play. That guides on which players can make it to the team.”
“But at the moment I believe there is something I can add to the current National side and if given the chance I will receive it with two hands wide open,” he noted.
It’s can be easily seen that the national team has greatly struggled offensively which has forced many to ask if we do not have a proven striker as a nation.
However, with CHAN knocking on the door it must be the right time for Ndugwa to strip on the national jersey once again.
Since he joined BUL, the forward has proved to still have his scoring boots, he can shoot and posses aerial prowess.
Ndugwa joined the oil manufacturers in January as a direct replacement for Musa Esenu who moved to Rayon Sport in Rwanda.
Ndugwa managed to score 12 goals last season, three in the UPL and nine in the Uganda Cup where he guided his side to glory.
“I am glad that since I joined BUL it’s been going well and am enjoying my stay here. I am just getting more hungry for glory days every other day that passes.”
The former Wakiso Giants forward opened his 2022-23 scoring account with a brace as BUL walloped league newbies Blacks Power 5-0 in the latter’s den.
In their next game, leaders BUL will host UPDF FC on Saturday, October 8, at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.
