SPORT – FOOTBALL: KCCA FC in-form striker Brian Aheebwa is confident that the fine form he has had at club level will be carried on to the Uganda Cranes at the forthcoming Africa Nations Championship in Cameroon.
The highly rated on-form forward is Uganda’s most relied-on striker ahead of much anticipated continental tournament.
Aheebwa who plays as a typical forward (No.9) has already found the net 10 times for the Kasasiro boys in just 6 games since joining them at the start of the season from Mbarara City FC.
His seven goal tally in the Uganda Premier League place him top of the log as the leading goal scorer and a hattrick he scored in the CAF Confederation Cup where KCCA FC unfortunately exited by an away goals rule to AS Kigali.
Speaking to this website, Aheebwa reterated that he is optimistic his good return can be maintained at CHAN to help Uganda perform well.
“I’m first of all thankful to God that I have had a good run with the club. It gives me confidence as a player and I hope this can be same for the National Team.”
“As a player this is a big opportunity and honour to play for the National Team and this is a challenge I have been waiting for. The team is ready and everyone is in good shape since we arrived here.” He said after training on Monday.
Uganda is in group C alongside defending Champions Morocco, Rwanda and Togo.
