So unfortunate for Uganda Cranes so unlucky indeed - Bobby Williamson
Once again the Uganda Cranes failed at the last hurdle and will sit out of finals of 2013 Orange Africa Nations Cup in South Africa. It has now 34 years since Cranes last appeared in the Africa show piece. Ugandan coach Bobby Williamson spoke to Cafonline.com.after the match
Cafonline.com: So close again but still too far, where did it go wrong?
Williamson: We won the game that is what we set out to do but why we don’t play extra time in a major competition is beyond me. Extra time should be played, penalties is the last thing anybody wants.
Cafonline.com: What would you say about the team’s overall performance over two matches against Africa champions Zambia?
Williamson: The team’s performance over two matches was fantastic. In the first leg we should not have conceded that goal in Ndola. Here we scored an early goal but unfortunately we could not add on. We had a good chance at the end the goalkeeper made a good save. We played well today.
Cafonline.com: Uganda has definitely made good progress but in your opinion what does it take to make that final hurdle and reach finals in the competition?
Williamson: You people have been watching the team you can also decide.A lot, we did not have our luck as simple as that. People can read their own thing all the time but Uganda has been very unfortunate, one time it was goal difference, then we could not score against Kenya and this time round penalties. It very unfortunate thing and it has to be, not been easy for Cranes
