Mathias Muwanga is buoyant after saving two penalties in a 4-1 shootout win as Express FC dumped police out of Uganda Cup.

The keeper had fallen in the pecking order during Kefa Kisala’s last days at the club but is slowly regaining the trust and confidence under new coach George Semwogerere.

The keeper says the game was tough and could have gone either way but they remained calm to win it in penalties.

“It wasn’t a bad game, you know every knockout game is tough it was a 50-50 game we got the chances but we couldn’t score but we had the hope that even if it’s a draw we shall edge it in penalties,” Muwanga said.


The keeper, formerly at URA and Sadolin paints, is bullish stating that saving the two penalties was just a routine act.

“To me it’s a normal thing,” he bullishly added, “but first of all I will thank the coaches for trusting me to be back in goal they saw my abilities and trusted me and I have not let them down. I promise the fans this is the trophy we are looking at, Uganda Cup.”

On the tournament, Muwanga reveals that the players are targeting the overall prize.

“There’s no doubt, just know that we want to win this trophy it’s our target to win it, it’s what we are working for.”
