Sand Cranes Lose To Egypt In Last Group Game

The Uganda National Beach Soccer Team were handed their first beating at the ongoing COSAFA Beach Soccer Championship by Egypt.

During the last game in group B played at the Beach Arena in Durban, South Africa on Wednesday, Egypt triumphed over Sand Cranes. The match ended 7-2 in a disappointing loss by the Cranes.

The game had to decide which team would top the group B table since both teams won their two opening games. The teams had also secured semi-final slots already.

Hassane Hussein led the way for Egypt bagging a hat trick before Ismaeel Bahgat came through with a brace. Moustafa Abdelmoneim and Moustafa Shaaban scored a goal apiece to induce more pain to Uganda.

Ambrose Kigozi and Brian Nkuubi scored Uganda’s consolation goals. On Friday, the Sand Cranes will face Senegal in the semi final. Senegal is the defending champion in Africa.

Uganda will face Senegal in the forthcoming Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations in Mozambique next month. It should be noted that Uganda is pitted in the same group with Senegal, Egypt and Madagascar.

Back to the COSAFA Beach Soccer Championship, the other semifinal will see Egypt face off against Mozambique.

Uganda and other teams are using this tournament as part of their preparation for next month’s Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations.
