Top Ugandan musician Moses Sali a.k.a Bebe Cool yesterday failed to find the net when he had only the goal keeper to beat during a football match between Uganda Cranes and their fans held at KCC grounds Lugogo in Kampala.
The event dubbed ‘meet and greet’ or Uganda Cranes Fans’ day was organized by Uganda Cranes Initiative (UCI) to galvanize support for the national team ahead of the CECAFA championship slated to begin next Saturday 24th November.
Although he is a master of the stage, Bebe, an ardent Arsenal fan failed to put the fans’ select side ahead with the game drawing 2 – 2.
His musical nemesis Jose Chameleone will receive this as good news considering he had dared his rival to a penalty shootout to settle their differences.
However cheer leader popularly known as Uncle Money showed he is not only good at stirring morale during games by scoring a goal to give the fans a 3 – 2 lead before the Cranes equalized to force the game to a shootout.
The exhibition game was won by Uganda Cranes who beat the fans’ select side 5 – 4 on penalties after the ninety minutes had ended in a three all draw.
Hema water gave 50 boxes of water and Shs 500,000 to the national side as contribution.
Uganda Cranes Coach Bobby Williamson who attended the event will hope the score line does not extend to the CECAFA championship because it demonstrated defensive loopholes on the side of the national team bearing in mind they were playing an inexperienced fans’ side.
