Women’s Cecafa: Crested Cranes Player Ratings Against Kenya

Women’s cecafa championship
Uganda 0-4 Kenya

The Uganda crested cranes had a poor start at the opening day of the women’s CECAFA women’s football tournament that started on Sunday at Njeru technical centre.

The Kenyan starlets humiliated the home side 4-0 with Esse Akida Mbeyu netting a brace while Vivian Cazoran and Kinuthia Mary Wanjiku added the other goals.

ChimpReports‘ Joel Muyita rates the crested cranes performance in the 4-0 thumping.

Ruth Aturo (6)
Despite conceding four goals, pilule Aturo was the best performer for the crested cranes and had it not been for her presence in goal, the score would have been worse.

Stella Kaliba (4)
Kaliba had a performance to forget with Okoth Nedy Atieno causing havoc when she got the ball. Two of the four goals came off her position.

Nakayenze Yudayah (4)
She kept her position much of the time but failed to move upfront whenever the cranes were in attack hence limiting the offensive options.

Nakitto Gladys (4.5)
Nakitto started the game calm and composed but wore out as the game grew and lost game reading hence exposing the goal area to the opponents.


Christine Wanyana (5)
The Crane’s skipper stood firm winning most of the aerial balls and making clearances but failed to command the defence line hence losing shape whenever the Kenyans attacked.

Jean Peace Sseninde (3.5)
Too heavy to compete with Carolyn Omondi and Doreen Nabwire Omondi who bossed the midfield. Jean failed to give cover to the defence with two goals coming outside the 18- yard box.

Namuleme Zaina (3)
She was off colour for the time she was on the pitch and failed to offer support to Kaliba who was exposed all the time.

Naome Nagadya (3)
A poor display from Nagadya who failed to link the defence with the attack.

Hasifa Nassuna(4)
She spent most of the time trying to chase for the ball hence did not get chance to express her abilities.

Laki Otandeka (5.5)
Despite failing to score against Kenya, Laki proved a thorn in the foot for the starlets whenever she got the ball but she lacked supply and  support from teammates.

Winnie Babirye (3)
Unfortunate that she got injured after just 15 minutes into the game.


Joan Nakirya (5)
She came on for the injured Babirye and tried to inject pace and power. Towards the end of the game, she was moved to defence to try and limit the damage.

Ritah Nabossa (4.5)
Nabossa came on for Nagadya at the hour mark but played deeper into her own half yet she was brought on to offer support to the attacking trio of Nassuna,Laki and Namuleme

Sandra Nantumbwe (3.5)
She came on for Namuleme but had no impact and was too weak to challenge the powerful Kenyans.

Majidah Nantanda (coach) (4)
The coach failed to read the game and the substitutions made especially in the second half had no impact.
