However, in return for the second interval after the long break, the group put up a spirited fight scoring twice to secure a 2-1 win thanks to Steven Sserwanda’s 57th goal and Derrick Kakooza’s well taken penalty in the final minutes of the second half.  

The win sends Uganda to the quarterfinals as the second placed team in group A with 6 points, three behind leaders Cameroon.
