In the game, Uganda did need to shift different gears in order to find the right momentum the team had to thrive on in order to collect a win from a resilient Western Region Select.
After the game, Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin Sredojevic alias Micho was full of praises for the forward labeling him as a special player.
Micho came out to say that;
Titus Ssematimba is a special young player with a sense to get into the box and not many players can do so.
He is a young player who came to the light this year in the Uganda Premier League with his side Wakiso Giants and he has so far done so well.
He is extremely talented but instead of romancing him, we need to be critical because he has material but it’s our responsibility to turn into a final product.
I do not only coach Ugandan players but I also love them and I surely enjoy it when I see them improve.
Titus Ssematimba piles his trade at Wakiso Giants where he signed on a long term contract from Regional side Black Star FC, Masanafu.
Ssematimba will continue to engage in Uganda Cranes preparations for CHAN qualifiers but his main target will be making it to the final squad.
Uganda Cranes will play Tanzania away in their first qualifier game on Saturday 27th August before the return leg at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on 3rd September.
The team with a greater aggregate will get to the final CHAN tournament slated to take place in Algeria, January 2023.
