Uganda Cranes played their second and final international build up against Niger on Saturday night.

The Uganda Cranes lost 2-1 in a match played under flood lights at the Stade Général Seyni Kountché in Niamey city.

The hosts scored two goals through Zakari Victorien Adebayor and Kamilou Daouda.

Uganda’s late consolation came from right back Nico Wakiro Wadada, off the assist of second half substitute Yunus Senamtu.

Head coach Sebastien Desabre made key changes from the first line up that had lost 1-0 to Central African Republic, introducing the team captain Denis Onyango, Moses Opondo, Nico Wakiro Wadada and Edrisa Lubega to the starting line up.

This was Opondo’s debut for Uganda Cranes.

The team returns on Monday early morning with key lessons attained from the two build up matches as the planning process for the AFCON 2019 matches against Tanzania and Lesotho continues.
