Rwanda strike late to deny Cranes win



Papy Sibomana scored a late goal to deny Uganda their first ever victory in Rwanda as the Cranes were held 2-2 in an international friendly in Kigali on Wednesday.

Saidi Kyeune had put Uganda ahead in the 29th minute before Meddie Kagere restored parity before the break.

Debutant and Gor Mahia striker Daniel Sserunkuma then got onto the score sheet from the penalty spot on 67 minutes but Sibomama’s strike with seven minutes to go meant the tie had to end in a stalemate.

The Rwandans enjoyed the early spells of the game with Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza and Peter Kagabo all testing Abel Dhaira in the Ugandan goal.

But Sserunkuma and Kyeyune soon got grasp of proceedings. The striker, who led a three-man attack with Hamis ‘Diego’ Kiiza and Brian Umony, released Kyeyune, who beat Rwandan goalkeeper Jean Luc for Uganda’s lead.

But Kagere leveled matters when he beat Dhaira with the visitors’ defence at sea. However, there was no denying Sserunkuma his day.

The striker, who was at war with his country after claiming he would consider changing nationality to Kenya after being ignored by Cranes coach Bobby Williamson, stepped forward to score on his debut from the spot after Odur was fouled.

But Sibomana had other ideas, grabbing a late the equalizer to spoil the visitors’ would-have been moment.
