Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien got the real love from the people of Kasese when the National team kicked off the 2018 regional tours this weekend.

It was the first time for the Frenchman to take the Uganda Cranes out on the tour.

Kitara named a team as per the rules and regulations of the competition (Non Uganda premier League players) but matched the Uganda Cranes players over the 90 minutes.

The match attended by mammoth crowds ended in a 2-2 at Nyakasanga grounds-Kasese.

Uganda Cranes took the lead through Allan Kyambadde before Kitara equalised through Robert Baruku.
