Massa: We Tried to Avoid Injuries, Expect the Best Against Congo

Cranes captain, price Geoffrey Massa has defended the poor show exhibited by the team in the 1-0 loss to Zambia on Tuesday.

“We played a good game but were just unlucky getting almost three or four chances which we failed to score a goal and like their coach said they only got one chance and buried the game, ” Massa said.

The captain led the attack for an hour before paving way for Geoffrey Sserunkuma missed two clear cut chances in both halves with the closest presenting three minutes after the break.

Moses Oloya broke through to the right flank and curled in a low cross. Shabaan appeared to have been pulled down inside the six yard while trying to head in but the referee remained silent, Massa controlled the ball and woefully raised it above the bar with an empty net staring.

“I didn’t play like I always play just like most of the players and to one extent we tried to avoid injuries however, I am in good shape,” he explained.

“Everyone in the dressing room is focused on the Saturday game and we all want to play and carry the country.”

“Our main focus is on the Saturday game though there are a lot of areas we have to patch up before facing Congo Brazzaville. That said, It’s a very important game for us and we have to play and win no matter what the case.”

Cranes resume training on Wednesday with recovery drills and they’ll be joined by defender Ronald Mukiibi and Us-based Mike Azira.
