Ex-Man UTD keeper in as Ugandan midfielder scoops Man of the match in USA

Uganda Cranes utility player Mike Azira was named man of the match despite Minesota United FC, a new entrant, holding his club Colorado Rapids in a four goal thriller at their home in Dick's Sporting Goods Park over the weekend in a Major league soccer match. 

Dominique Badji and Marlon Hairston scored in either half for Rapids to ensure they pick a point and maintain their unbeaten streak at the grounds in regular season to 19 games.

Azira was feted after an excellent performance with the Health System one sponsored award. Former Manchester United and Everton Keeper Tim Howard was in goal for the Colorado Rapids. 

Rapids will be back in action on Sunday 9th April against Sporting Kansas City.
