FIFA World Cup Mutyaba scores for Uganda Cranes but Algeria rally to win in Kampala

Following last week’s 2-1 loss to Guinea, Algeria enjoyed an away victory by the same scoreline over Uganda who initially took the lead in as early as the 10th minute courtesy of Travis Mutyaba at Namboole Stadium in Kamala on Monday.

The early concession did not deter the Algerians from their objective and their efforts were duly rewarded in the 46th minute when Houssem Aouar levelled matters before Said Benrahma found the all-important goal to seal a crucial victory for the north Africans.

Meanwhile, The Pharaohs maintained their lead at the top of Group A following a hard-fought 1-1 draw against Guinea-Bissau away from home.

The hosts took the lead in the 42nd minute when Mama Baldé broke the deadlock. It was however Egypt’s trusted man, Mohammed Salah who levelled matters in the 70th minute to ensure that his side remain in the driver’s seat in Group A.
