Uganda Cranes suffered a second loss under Interim coach Morley Byekwaso after losing 3-0 to Zambia in their friendly on Tuesday.

A brace from Leicester City’s Patson Daka and Fashion Sakala saw the Chipolopolo prevail at Al Hamriya Stadium in Sharjah, UAE.

Uganda also lost to Mali 1-0 in their previous game last Friday.

Interim coach Byekwaso asserts that they will use the lessons they learnt in two games to prepare for the upcoming games.

“We have learnt lessons from the two games. Against Zambia we could have scored first because we got the chances but we don’t concentrate. We played well in the first half but in the second half we lost mileage and Zambia were more fitter than us. We had players who don’t play for their clubs regularly, so it affected us but above all these friendly games are a learning lesson for players.”

Football does not end today, we still have games to play as a national team, so this has taught us alot and we shall back and prepare the team.” Said Byekwaso

Uganda will now shift focus on the forthcoming World Cup Qualifiers that are set to begin next month.
