After the cranes 1- 0 victory over Congo Brazzaville, a number of football pundits and Crane fans suggested that the team captain should retire.This is after he put up an awful display during the match missing two golden opportunities to put the ball behind the net. “He is too old,and he is costing us”..one of the football commentators said on one T.V station.Cranes captain Geoffrey Massa says he will only retire when “I see somebody who’s better than me and ready to offer what I do”
However when we contacted Massa who is in south Africa right now,he said that . ‘I helped this team qualify after 39 yrs..Goal drought calls for hard word not quitting’
The Uganda Cranes will be playing in the African Nations Cup they last played in 39 years ago.
