Vipers SC striker Fahad Aziz Bayo is motivated after scoring on his return to the senior Uganda Cranes return indicting that this was a dream come true because he has always longed to play for the senior national team.
The marksman scored as Uganda overcame Malawi with a 2-0 win on Sunday at Mandela National Stadium Namboole in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.
“I thank Allah for the goal but most importantly that we won the game. I appreciate the coaches and my teammates for the trust,” Bayo said before adding.
“Of course it is a dream come true for me to score for the national team and I believe this will motivate me in the next games,” he added.
Okwi opened the scores at the half hour mark when he calmly controlled Joseph Ochaya’s cross before firing into the back of the net.
Bayo’s moment came in the 66th minute when he dispossessed Lucky Malata just after the halfway line and he did no mistake to slot home.
Bayo also played a crucial role as Uganda qualified for the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) scoring in the 3-0 win against Burundi in Kampala.
He has so far scored eight goals in the league this season but 10 goals overall this season for his club Vipers SC.
