Cranes coach salutes players after win



Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson saluted his players for successfully defending their Cecafa Tusker Cup after beating Kenya's Harambee Stars 1-0 in the final at Namboole Stadium on Saturday.

Williamson also celebrated a huge fete in his career as Cranes coach clinched his fourth Cecafa crown since taking over the team and termed the win as a product of hard work, determination and discipline.

He also took time to praise Kenya describing them as a young and enterprising that could make it far.

"I want to say at one point in the game I was nervous especially when Kenya equalised but my players put up a brave fight to finish off the game just before the final whistle. It was a tough game but proper tactical awareness won us the game as Stars gave as much as they received."

"I am elated for having defended the Cecafa title and attribute this to hard work and determination on the part of players and the technical bench. I would also like to thank the fans who have been exceptional from the word go as their support contributed to our confidence," Williamson told supersport.com.

Cranes are the most successful team in the region having won the Cecafa cup a record 13 times.
