Uganda beat Burkina Faso at CHAN 2014

Posted: 12 January 2014 Time: 22:24

Yunus Sentamu scored twice as Uganda beat Burkina Faso 2-0 in their Group B clash at the 2014 African Nations Championship on Sunday night.

The Cranes were full value for their victory at Athlone Stadium, creating the better chances and controlling possession against a much younger and less experienced Burkina Faso side.

The latter’s line-up bore little resemblance to the one that made it to the final of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations this time last year, and their performance suggests they will battle in this competition.

Sentamu’s first came after a mistake from Issoufou Dayo, who slipped while trying to clear the ball, allowing the striker a clear run on goal and he rounded the keeper to score.

Denis Iguma should have made it 2-0 to Uganda when he was put through on goal by Hassan Wasswa, but the Burkinabe goalkeeper Mohamed Kabore thwarted him in the one-on-one situation.

Burkina Faso had a chance to level just before the hour-mark, but Aboubacar Traoré fired over the top with the goal gaping.

Sentamu netted his second to extend the Ugandans’ advantage as he profited from a fine cross from Aboubacar Traoré to turn the ball home.

Burkina Faso gave themselves hope when they pulled a goal back two minutes from time as substitute Cyrille Bayala bundled the ball home, but Uganda held on for what was a deserved victory.

While Gordon field successful failures Uganda field teenagers and they are really good. This is what should have happened here with Bafanibafani. Why Gordon is so obessed with amatopi who've successfully embarassed the country on numerous occasion? Why he didn't use Shakes squad for this useless tourney? This shows that there's no blue print map a wayforwar for SA football! This is very sad.
