What was meant to be an exhibition match turned s very competitive towards the end as Barcelona legends pulled back two precious goals after Uganda all-stars led 4-1 for almost for three quarters of the game after Uganda introduced legendary goalie Sadiq Waswa who looked off form.
Before the guests even had a feel of touch on their seats, Uganda Cranes star Tonny Mawejje had put the Cranes ahead after 2 minute’s after a good work from a good workout from winger Vincent Kayizzia.
Barcelona responded with the goal of the day from star striker Patrick Kluivert. Who finished off with an outrageous loop from about 30 yards via a cut back from the impressive Albert Luque.
Two goals by Geoffrey Sserunkuma and others by substitute, Steven Bengo and Mike Sserumaga made it 5-3 for the home side whose fans turned to cheering the vising Barcelona legends after the home boys became wasteful in front of goal and lazy in possession.
Mike Serumagga only made sure of the win after Barcelona legends pressed for an equalizer with the game hanging at 4-3. In the end, the scoreline didn’t matter so much as the intentions op for the game were already fulfilled.
