Cosafa U20: Uganda Hippos coach calls for focus

07 Dec, 21:48

Uganda Hippos shocked pre-tournament favourites and hosts, Zambia, in the opening match of the 2017 Cosafa Under-20 championship on Wednesday 7 December in Kitwe. 

Captain Shaban Muhammad scored twice early in the second half to silence the hosts. Head coach Martin Lule has cautioned his team to avoid complacency and step up their performance to win the remaining fixtures.


-We were lucky to win yesterday’s (Wednesday) game but it’s not over until it’s over. Our remaining opponents are equally stronger so we have to step up our efforts to win the remaining games. We have corrected some mistakes that we made yesterday. We are very focused on tomorrow’s game, Lule said after Thursday training.

Uganda will face Swaziland on Friday and Malawi on Monday in the last game. The group winners and best runners-up will qualify for the semi-finals.
