Friendly Comoros humiliate Uganda Cranes in one-sided battle

Uganda Cranes suffered a humiliating 4-0 defeat against Comoros in the first of the two international friendlies in the March window at the Grande Stade, Marrakech on Friday.

Troyes forward Rafiki Saidi and Faiz Selemani scored a brace in the first and second half respectively to earn the Islanders a deserved win on the day.

Two goals inside eight minutes troubled in the Cranes before conceding twice again in the first twenty-one minutes of the second stanza.

Paul Put who was only handling his third game since being appointed as Cranes head coach started with Ikara in goal but the BUL custodian was far from convincing on a night the experienced Jamal Salim and Ismail Watenga were unavailable.

Uganda will next face Blacl Stars of Ghana, who suffered a 2-1 defeat against Nigeria also on Friday.
