Goals from Mike Sserumaga and Patrick Edema salvaged Uganda Cranes a stalemate in Yemen on Sunday night.

The visitors settled early on their home ground and raced into a 2-0 lead. On the back of thrashing Senegal 4-1 in their last friendly encounter, the feeling that Cranes was going to be walked over lingered heavily. But Sserumaga, who has been in poor form at Bunnamwaya, showed why coach Bobby Williamson still believes in him by pulling a goal back.

Proline youngster Edema then levelled to hand Cranes a share of the spoils. It was his first international goal, coming in his second cap. But it was his second goal against Yemen; he netted against them in the Cecafa U-20 Championship in Asmara, Eritrea where the Asian side featured as guests. Uganda won that tie 3-2.

Yesterday’s match was a build up for the national team, which will seek to defend its Cecafa crown in Tanzania later this month. After Cecafa, Cranes will shift focus to the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) next year.
