Farouk Miya’s Strike Nominated By CNN For ‘Goal Of the Tournament’

Much as we were eliminated from the group stages of the African cup of nations, Uganda cranes have something else to smile about especially for one player known as Farouk Miya.

Besides scoring Uganda’s only goal at the tournament, that specific goal has been chosen by CNN to be among the tournament’s best goals.


Farouk Miya was also Man of the match in the game against Mali

Other goals that are contending include Piqueti’s of Burkina Faso against Cameroon, the free kick that Muhammad Salah scored against Ghana, Bisoouma’s free kick against Uganda and Alioui’s goal against Morocco.

Farouk Miya’s 70th minute thunderbolt from outside the area as was their only goal in a tournament that the Uganda Cranes last participated in 39 years ago and it ensured that the Cranes drew 1-1 with Mali in their last group game
