Fahad Aziz Bayo returned to haunt Amavubi once again with his first half goal to hand Uganda Cranes a 1-0 win over Rwanda in Group E’s 2022 World Cup qualifiers’ encounter played at St Mary’s Stadium on Sunday.
Bayo headed home the only goal of the clash in the 22nd minute as Uganda Cranes completed the double over neighbours Rwanda.
The striker also did the same damage in Kigali on Thursday after scoring the lone goal in the first half as Cranes beat Rwanda 1-0 to hand Milutin Sredojević Michu his first win as head coach of Uganda Cranes.
The defeat effectively ended Rwanda’s 2022 World Cup dream as they now trail Group E table leaders Mali with nine points. Only group winners proceed to the final qualifying round
Uganda meanwhile remain in the second place of the log with 8 points just 2 points adrift log leaders Mali who extended their lead at the top after beating Kenya 1-0 at Nyayo Stadium in Nairobi.
Both teams are back in action on Thursday November 11, 2021 when Uagand host Kenya at St Mary’s stadium in their next campaign, Rwanda meanwhile will host Mali at Nyamirambo Regional Stadium.
