Super substitute and defender Halid Lwaliwa scored the only goal that earned Uganda Cranes a narrow victory against resilient South Sudan in Africa Cup of Nations in match day three encounter.

Halid Lwaliwa, who came in as a forced substitute for Ronald Mukiibi who suffered a switch injury in 69th minute, scored a goal that made a difference on a day between Uganda and neighbors South Sudan.

With five minutes to final whistle, Halid Lwaliwa won it for Uganda with a free header, thanks to Farouk Miya’s free kick from left flank.

The win consolidated Uganda on top of the table of group B, now with seven points from three games and South Sudan remained on bottom of the table with no point.

The same fixture is to come again three days from now in a return leg, and the fixture shall be held in Nairobi Kenya.
