Saudi Arabia overcame Uganda U-23 team 2-0 during an international build up duel played at the Prince Faisal Bin Abdulaziz Stadium, Riyadh city on Monday, 5th July 2021.
Abdullah Abdurahman and Hashim Alyami scored the two goals for Saudi Arabia, each coming in either half.
Abdurahman got the opener in the 40th minute before Alyami’s second in the third minute of added time.
”During the second game, we improved a lot offensively as we created a lot of chances. Finishing disappointed us and we have to work on that. We need to rectify the defense as well because we conceded two goals. We have learnt a lot from the two matches as we prepare for the CECAFA tournament,” said Uganda’s Coach, Morley Byekwaso.
This was the final build upon the training tour in Saudi Arabia as the team prepares for the upcoming CECAFA senior challenge cup.
