A goalless draw at Namboole Stadium against Kenya’s Harambee Stars has  extinguished the vital hopes the Ugandan Cranes had in their Nations Cup campaign. A full 90 minutes of play in a full-to-capacity stadium has ended with no goals netted.

Even with the formidable team effort from a visibly dominating Cranes side, the thickly-bodied Kenyan side kept to their object and kept any balls from meeting their net.
 
Brian Umony proved to be ontop of his game after a year's absence from the Cranes team. He kept the Kenyan defense busy, especially in the first half of the game, never abandoning his cause.
 
The goalless draw throws Uganda out of further contention for the Nations Cup finals with Angola having beaten Guinea Bissau 2-0 earlier today. The win assures Angola qualification for the 2012 Nations Cup finals.
