Uganda coach Paul Put reacts after comeback draw against Ghana’s Black Stars

Head coach of the Uganda national team, Paul Put has shared his excitement following his outfit stalemate against the Black Stars of Ghana on Tuesday.

The Cranes came from behind twice to draw 2-2 with the West African powerhouse in a thrilling international friendly game played at the Stade Marrakech in Morocco.

Defender Jerome Opoku headed home Ghana’s opening goal before Kotoko star Steven Desse Mukwala leveled pegging for Uganda.

Crystal Palace star Jordan Ayew converted from the spot to restore Ghana’s lead but the Cranes staged a comeback in the dyeing embers of the game to snatch a draw after Mohammed Shaban found the back of the net.

This was a marked improvement from the 4-0 defeat to Comoros last week in their first test match.

“I am happy with the result because we played one of the strongest teams of Africa so I think the players made a good performance,” Uganda Cranes coach Paul Put stated a post-match press conference.

“But we may not be blind, for a tournament like world cup qualifiers we conceded two goals again today so we have to learn so that it doesn’t happen in June because if you concede goals, its very difficult to come back.

“I think there is progress but also still a lot of work to do. I hope to recover injured players for the game in June because we had to change a lot so it’s not that easy.”
