“This is a big motivation for the country and the young boys who are coming up and willing to play for the Uganda Cranes. This is going to motivate us that in the next five years we are going to see a very strong Uganda national team side,” Byekwaso told CAF’s official website.

“The Federation has invested a lot in young players and in youth football and all this is meant at strengthening the senior national team. This is a huge success, because we came here as underdogs and now we are in the final”, he added.
