IT is a tale of two Ugandan coaches and players as Bunamwaya take on Tanzaniaâ€™s Young Africans in the Kagame Castle Cup in Dar es Salaam today.
The Edward Goloola versus Sam Timbe tactical duel will take center stage as the two teams vie for a berth in the quarterfinals in the regional club championship.
To add an extra layer of excitement will be the Ugandan players in either side. The Tanzanian champions will likely field Ugandan signings Derrick Walulya, and Hamis Kiiza.
Timbe is likely to rely on Kiizaâ€™s prowess and knowledge of the Ugandan representatives.
Kiiza who top scored for URA (with 14 goals) before crossing to Tanzania has proved to be an asset in front of goal. He has so far scored five goals for Uganda in the Under-23 Olympic qualifiers.
The 22-year-old proved his precision in front of goal when he netted Simbaâ€™s second goal on his debut against Elman of Somalia on Thursday.
Bunamwaya has been keenly waiting for the arrival of Godfrey Walusimbi who was expected to jet in yesterday.
â€œKiiza may be the only challenge because he knows us very well,â€ hinted Bunamwaya assistant coach Richard Wasswa. Bunamwaya need a win to qualify for the quarterfinals.
Timbe will rely on Kiizaâ€™s knowledge
