“In football, teamwork comes first, then we can talk about individual contributions”, Kaddu added.
Uganda finished second in Group A behind hosts Egypt to guarantee their first AFCON knockout stages appearance since losing the 1978 final to Ghana. Victory against DR Congo inspired by goals from Kaddu and Emmanuel Okwi, was followed by a 1-1 draw with Zimbabwe. The 2-0 defeat to hosts Egypt didn’t stop Sebastien Desabre’s Cranes from reaching the round of 16, where they will face Africa’s top ranks Senegal in Cairo on Friday.
“It is good to score and especially scoring for the national team. It is always a pleasure, and I do it for the rest of the teammates”, Kaddu concluded.
