Flores Secures Second Loss As Villa Boss

  • FT’ Uganda Kobs 2 – 0 SC Villa

Newly signed SC Villa manager Antonnio Flore once again suffered a second blow with his side losing 2-0 to Uganda U-23 side at the Nakivubo stadium on Saturday evening.


The 2-0 loss at the hands of Uganda Kobs sends the Spaniard to a second straight loss after losing his first debut against Maroons FC during their Eid Cup clash a week back on a 4-3 penalty shootout following a goalless score in normal time.

Kezironi Kizito routed the opener before second half substitute; Farouk Miya doubled the lead for the Kobs as they defeated the still loopy Sc Villa.

The Kobs team skipper, Farouk Miya netted a penalty in the 77th minute following a handball call in the forbidden area.

For the Kobs side, they are in advanced preparations for a return leg against Egyptian Young Pharaohs a side that gave them a 4 four goal deficit.

Head coach, Milutin Sredojevic remains optimistic but believes his boys can reverse a 4-0 deficit and eliminate their counterparts.

“The team morale is steadily picking up and soon I believe we can perform better than how we played the first leg in Egypt, football is football, we still have to do what Egypt did in Alexandria to eliminate them,” Micho said after the match

The Kobs have confirmed to play with Express FC on Tuesday at Mutesa II memorial Stadium Wankulukuku in yet another build up match four days before they host Egypt on 1st August 2015.
