Sebastian Desabre was left a disappointed man after Uganda succumbed to two goals by Mohammed Salah and Ahmed Elmohamady to lose 2-0 to Egypt in their last match of the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Cranes had registered four points and three goals in their opening two games against the DR Congo and Zimbabwe but failed to register any against the rampant hosts.
“I am disappointed with the results because I think we missed a lot of chances. We decided to use two strikers upfront but were not successful in scoring. The most important thing in football is to score,” the coach lamented.
Desabre, who sounded a bit disappointed with his striking line, however, congratulated his players for the performance.
“However, I am proud of my players because they played well and gave a good image of Ugandan football. I think we really deserved to progress. I congratulate Egypt for the win. The fans also turned up and put an amazing scene. We still have a long way in building Ugandan football.”
Uganda advanced as the runners up in group B with four points as DR Congo await results from the other matches to determine the best third-placed teams.
