In his message, Onyango applauds the boys for making Uganda proud before telling them to make more history and make it to the final as they are just one step closer.
“Work extremely hard as you have been doing. Don’t be afraid to make history because it’s possible. Just be brave out there and take us to the World Cup,” says Onyango.
