Wakiso Giants host Vipers

Wakiso Giants will host Vipers SC in this year’s Uganda Cup round of 16.

This is a repeat of last year’s quarter finals.

Both team learnt of their opponents this afternoon.

The draw function was held at FUFA Complex in the presence of the FUFA 3rd Vice President Hon. Florence Nakiwala Kiyingi.

Former Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Sadiq Wassa also graced the occasion and shared his story in the prestigious knockout competition.

“I’m privileged to have won the Uganda Cup both as a player and a coach. This competition is worth winning because knockout games are always thrilling. I therefore thank FUFA for inviting me to be part of today’s function.” He said.

“I remember SC Villa had won the League and were aiming to clinch a double. They had beaten us in midweek to lift the League title and we had to face them in the Cup final over the weekend. Luckily, we defeated them and denied them a double.” Wassa said.

The former shot stopper also went ahead to lift the Cup twice as a goalkeeping coach at URA FC in 2011/12 and 2013/14 seasons.
