The Guinea side settled straight away from kick off and dominated possession with danger man and captain Ibrahim Traore tormenting the Cranes defence with intelligent runs and shots at goalkeeper Denis Onyango before scoring from a free kick after 23 minutes.

The Uganda Cranes defence comprising Andy Mwesigwa, Isaac Insinde and Walusimbe on the left flank , was shaky from kickoff and also was not passing or clearing balls very well which made the midfield disintegrate

Another danger man Seydouba Soumah who was making good runs and clever passes scored the second goal from the penalty spot after Uganda Cranes Captain Andrew Mwesigwa brought down striker Keita in the forbidden area and was sent off because he was the last man in the defense.
