South Africa v Uganda
SPIRITS were high in the Uganda Kobsâ€™ camp yesterday following the arrivals of foreign-based stars Geoffrey Massa and Hassan Wasswa.
For the first time, the U-23 youth side enjoyed full house two hour training.
Egypt-based forward Massa and defender Wasswa, who turns out for Ethiopian side St. George, defied fatigue to join a Kobs side that has steadily improved in speed, tactical discipline and one-on-one situations.
The El Shams striker Massa, later taunted Kobsâ€™ Olympics qualifier opponents South Africa that when it gets to quality, Kobs are in a league of their own.
â€œWhen you have players like Nsumba (Augustine), and Bongole (Anthony) around, you have to be positive,â€ Massa said.
Coach Laszlo Csaba gave an indication of where he intends to play his versatile foreign-based duo.
Massa exhibited a good game, running off defenders and finishing, while Wasswa commanded the back superbly.
â€œWe are a better team now,â€ Csaba, who names his 17-man team after training today, stressed.
The team departs for South Africa tomorrow.
