•Rayon Sports 0-1 Vipers SC
Bobosi Byaruhanga scored a beauty as Vipers edged Rwanda’s Rayon Sports in a friendly match at Nyamirambo stadium in Kigali.
Bobosi’s goal came in the third minute with his long-range right footed rocket finding the top corner with force and inevitability to leave the goalkeeper stunned.
And the Venoms held on to win their second Preseason game having beaten Young African 2-0 in Dar Es Salaam earlier.
However, the win might have come at the cost for Vipers who saw Frank Zaga Tumwesigye stretchered off late in the game after a nasty injury.
He joins Vipers sickbay that already has Paul Mucureezi and new signing Lumala Abdu who didn’t make the trip.
It has been an eventful outing for the Venoms in Rwanda who toured the Kigali city in an open-bus (sight-seeing) and also visited the Kigali Memorial to pay respect to the Victims of the Genocide war.
Vipers are using these friendlies as they warm up for the CAF Champions League Qualifiers where they were pitted against Olympic Real de Bangui of Central Africa Republic.
And the Uganda Premier League is just around the corner – September 30 – where they will be looking to defend their crown.
Vipers players used:
Starting XI – Fabien Mutombora, Ashraf Mandela, Isa Mubiru, Livingstone Mulondo, Hilary Mukundane, Siraje Ssentamu, Bobosi Byaruhanga, Bright Anukani, Milton Karisa, Yunus Sentamu & Ibrahim Orit.
Substitutions: Alfred Macumu Mudekereza, Olivier Osomba, Disan Galiwango, Abubakar Lawal, Najib Yiga, Frank ‘Zaga’ Tumwesigye, Marvin Joseph Youngman.
