Thomas Kakaire netted late in the game (83rd minute) to pull back a consolation goal for the Uganda U17 against Morocco. Kakaire plays for Bright Stars FC Junior team in the FUFA Juniors League.
Having fallen to Cameroon 4-1 on Tuesday, the Cubs were looking forward to impress against Morocco. However, the story didn’t change much as they again lost by the same score line. Boujemaoui Faissal, Loune Ali and Ait e Asri Oussama netted for Morocco.
It is the second loss of the Uganda Cubs as they will return to action on Friday against Belarus in a tournament organised by CAF and UEFA to help the 8 qualified teams to the AFCON U17 Finals prepare for the tournament in Tanzania due next month.
