Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Umony eyes repeat of Cecafa heroics



Portland Timbers’ forward Brian Umony returns to Cecafa close to three years since he took the region by storm in the tournament held in January 2009 in Kampala, Uganda.

And the Cranes striker, who impressed in the 2012 Nations Cup goalless qualifier against Kenya in October, is looking to relive the 2009 Cecafa memories when he top-scored with five goals, including the winner against Harambee Stars in the final.

“Of course as striker you want to score goals,” Umony told SuperSport.com ahead of the Cranes trip to Dar es Salaam to hunt for their 12th title. The tournament kicks off Friday with Uganda facing Zanzibar.

“I will do my best to do that (score) but let’s not forget we are a team. It’s not all about me, I can score goals and I can create, but the rest of the team can score, too.”

The 24-year-old added: “So we shall play as a team and hopefully bring the trophy home. And yes, I would love to be the top scorer (laughs).”

Cranes Bobby Williamson is building his attack around Umony and Mike Sserumaga, who many think hold Uganda’s key to unlocking defenses and going some distance in solving the scoring dilemma.
