Massa Struggling In SA

Football - 2014 Fifa World Cup Qualifier - Uganda Vs Angola - Mandela Stadium - Namboole - KampalaUganda Cranes striker Geoffrey Massa has earned the support of University of Pretoria boss Steve Barker who believes the star will again find his scoring boots in the near future.

Massa is among the experienced forwards called to the squad that will face Zambia in an international friendly away in Ndola on March 5th.

He  who started life in Tshwane with a bang, has struggled to find the back of the net of late.

Massa last scored for AmaTuks at the start of December when he netted a brace within the first five minutes of a 3-1 win over Free State Stars.

The 28-year-old thought he had ended his drought in front of goal against SuperSport United at the weekend, but his effort was chalked off for offside.

“It is always disappointing when you work hard, get into a good position and then you get the goal and then it is chalked off. It is unfortunate for him, but he just needs to work hard and the goals will come,” said Barker.

Massa has not scored for Uganda away from home in the last eight years.
