Alpha Thierry Ssali, son to popular Ugandan musician Bebe Cool, was the talk of the day after scoring a maiden goal for his club as his side Proline Fc eased past Myda FC in the Round of 32 of the Stanbic Uganda Cup on Tuesday.
Ssali, who is an academy graduate of Proline Soccer Academy exhibited an individual brilliance that led to his notch his first-ever career goal with the Cup holders at the MTN Omondi stadium on his second senior team appearance.
Kiwanuka Hakim, Brian Umony, and Kizza Hamisi scored the other 3 goals for Proline while Liberian Armed SALEH scored the consolation for MYDA.
Alpha after scoring ran all the way to hug his dad after scoring; as if to say, “Thank you for believing in me”. Bebe Cool has supported his child’s dream to play football since he was only 3, and now the results of hard work and persistence are starting to show.
At 17, Alpha is a regional gold medalist and continental silver medalist with the Uganda U-20 National soccer side.
