Uganda Cranes once again smiled to a 1-0 win over rivals Rwanda during the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers (group E) at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on Sunday, 10th October 2021.

Aziz Fahad Bayo was the hero with the goal, like he scored at Stade De Kigali – Nyamirambo on Thursday.

Bayo’s goal at Kitende came in the 22nd minute, still similar fashion after a corner kick delivery by left winger Isaac Muleme.

Uganda Cranes had the opportunities to add on the scores but efforts from Steven Mukwala, Moses Waiswa and Bobosi Byaruhanga were all missed.

There were debuts for Livingstone Mulondo who replaced the injured Timothy Denis Awanyi, Abdul Aziz Kayondo (made full debut) and Martin Kizza.

Uganda is now on 8 points, two behind Mali who beat Kenya 1-0 on the same day. Kenya remains on two points and Rwanda is on a single point.

Uganda Cranes return to action next month at home to rivals Kenya before the away trip to Morocco to face Mali in the final group E duel.
