CAF CONFED. CUP: COVID stricken URA hold Al Masry



Uganda Revenue Authority FC have been undone by the COVID-19 test results that eliminated 13 of their members of the squad including captain Shafiq Kagimu, strikers Steven Mukwala, Rwothomio Cromwell and Viane Sekajugo.

This left with Sam Timbe with no options going foward but to improvise with a few midfielders with an attacking niche.

The tax collectors were not to be 3rd time unlucky when the visitors were awarded with a 14th minute penalty but Amir Ramathan Moisa hit the woodwork to keep the scoreline barren.

Rising star defender Najib Fesali should have put URA infront on 30 minutes but his towering header hit the woodwork after a decent corner delivery from Saidi Kyeyune.

Winger Joachim Ojera, Davis Ssali and Mikidad Senyonga were all booked and they have to be cautious during the second round should URA progress to the group stages.

The two sides will face off again in Egypt next weekend on 24th October in Port Said .
