Micho Unhappy With Reversed Penalty Decision

Uganda Cranes coach, Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic remained perplexed after Sudan referee Ismail Mahmood Ali Mahmood overturned a penalty decision.

Milton Karisa went down in the penalty area after a challenge from John Okumu with Mahmood pointing to the spot.

However, after his assistant advised him against the decision, he reversed the decision. He simply awarded a free kick at the edge pf the box to the Ugandan side.

Joseph Ochaya put this opportunity to waste though.

‘’I believe we shall see what exactly happened and why the referee changed his mind. But in a way, I’m getting used to such decisions, last time in Zambia I had a genuine goal disallowed and now here it is the reverse in an already taken penalty decision,’’ Micho said in a post-match briefing.

The tactician however, felt pleased with the performance of his side after the first game with him in charge after his return.

He said he will not dwell so much on that because he believes his players gave everything in the match.

He said this considering that one team has been off season while the other has completely been competing.

Uganda takes on Mali on Monday at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende with the winner taking early leadership in Group E. Mali edged Rwanda in their first game in Morocco on Wednesday.
