Uganda’s consolation goal, coming in the final period of the well-attended game was scored by the team captain, Douglas Muganga.

Sidonne shot the Ivorians ahead in the opening period after a mouth melee at goal.

N’guessan beat goalkeeper Meddie Kibirige to double the lead with a simple finish as the visitors built a precious two goal caution.

Cote D’Ivoire’s third goal arrived in the second period when Franck Papet Hyacinthe dribbled past the Ugandan defence to set up Aka with the simplest of all finishes, extending the lead to 3-0 coming to the final period of the game.

Uganda’s skipper Muganga led by example with a great goal to reduce the score line and raise the expectations for the home team.
