Express FC head coach George Ssemwogerere is a man over the moon after he guided the side past BUL in the quarterfinals of the Stanbic Uganda Cup on Monday afternoon.
The Red Eagles progressed to the semi-finals of the most prestigious tournament in Uganda after Brian Umony’s early strike gave them the 1-0 win at the Betway Muteesa II Stadium Wankulukuku.
“It was a game of fighting, I thank my boys for the good work and the job they have done, they played according to the plan and the work is well done,” Ssemwogerere told www.football-256.com.
“Umony has been training well and he is ever giving 200% in training, I expected him to score and I thought he would score early because he always does that,” he added.
Ssemwogerere, however, highlighted that he needs to win a trophy this season as Express FC head coach, for him its the Uganda Cup in the picture since the league seems to be out of reach.
“I need to win the cup but I have to fight for it because it’s not a giveaway, I have ten days to play another league game so now I got a chance to train my boys well,” he noted.
Express’ next game will be a StarTimes Uganda Premier League fixture against the high flying URA side at Namboole on March 26th.
Express will have to wait for the semi-finals draw after the last semifinal to know their next opponent.
So far Bright Stars, Kyetume and Express have made it to the semifinals, Vipers and Proline will play on Tuesday at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo to determine the last semifinalist.
