Saturday’s display may have not been box office material, but few will beat its significance as Uganda continue the fight to get rid of the ‘since 1978’ tag. Yes. It has been that long, the Nations Cup absence.
But the moment when defender Savio Kabugo raced to head in from that Mike Sserumaga corner for Uganda’s goal on nine minutes could have edged the country closer to ending that misfortune.
It was a team effort, nonetheless. Dennis Onyango had little to deal with but his authority and command of an equally notable backline of skipper Andy Mwesigwa, Kabugo and Brian Majwega was impressive.
Tonny Mawejje was majestic in front of them, although subdued Geoffrey Massa did not get the service he would have wanted. But there was an inspiring second half performance from Daniel Sserunkuma, who replaced injured Yunus Ssentamu.
One inescapable trait in that Cranes team, even Ghana self-destructed or wasted their chances through profligate Christian Atsu and Majeed Waris, was the ‘fight.’ The boys had a fight.
It is the same fight they will have taken to Casablanca, Morocco last evening, where a draw against Guinea on Wednesday will be enough to see Uganda qualify, regardless of what happens between Ghana and Togo.
“We shall prepare ourselves very much because even for Ghana, Guinea and Togo, it is obsession to repeat it; an obsession to go back to the Africa Cup of Nations,” said Cranes coach Micho Sredojevic.
“For us it is a dream, and a dream is always bigger than obsession. So the dream has to be our driving force.”
With one game to go, Ghana top Group E standings with eight points, Uganda and Guinea both on seven but the Cranes with a better goal difference, and Togo with six.

PLAYER RATINGS

5. Farouk Miya. Like it was in the recent 3-0 friendly win over Ethiopia, Miya looked lost in the middle.

6/5. Mike Sserumagga. The ball was never around his left foot as he would have wanted. His corner kick assisted Kabugo’s winner but didn’t pick out the strikers and wingers regularly.

5/5. Luwagga Kizito. His form seemed to have gone out of the window as early as Match Day 2. He struggled to impress against Ghana’s wing-backs Harrison Afful and Baba Rahman.

4. Yunus Sentamu. He wasn’t in the best shape to start this fixture. The vindication was the yellow card he got in frustration after fouling Ayew before giving way to Sserunkuma.

6. Geoffrey Massa. His solo runs didn’t bother the Jonathan Mensah and John Boye combo but kept them busy.

7. Daniel Sserunkuma. He had a good overall and probably, should have started with Massa. The Gor Mahia forward often dropped off to give Majwega support.

6. Geoffrey Kizito. Despite joining the camp late, Kizito neutralized Mubarak Wakaso, Badu and Asante’s offensive efforts.

  • Symptoms of Diabetes

    Increased Thirst & Urination

    As glucose levels in the blood rise, the kidneys attempt to filter it from your blood. When there is too much glucose in the blood the kidneys eventually can’t keep up. The excess glucose is excreted into your urine along with fluids from your body. This causes more frequent urination as your body attempts to expel the glucose. You become chronically dehydrated and the urge to drink more becomes increased.

    Increased Hunger

    Your body needs to utilize insulin to pull glucose into your cells. When you have a lack of insulin, or are insulin resistant, your body can’t store the glucose in your cells. Cells need glucose for energy. Because you aren’t storing the glucose, your body doesn’t have the energy it needs. This translates to increased hunger as the body’s attempt to increase calories for energy. 

    Weakness and Fatigue

    Along the same lines as increased hunger, weakness and fatigue are a result of the body’s inability to properly utilize energy (glucose). Without being able to pull glucose into the cells, the body doesn’t have the proper amount of energy to function optimally. This results in fatigue and weakness. 

    Unexpected Weight Loss

    What happens when the body is excreting excess glucose when you eat? It’s not storing it as energy for later. The body excretes the glucose in urine and decreases the amount of calories that are being absorbed into the cells. This means you end up losing weight as a result since you can’t compensate in calories for what is lost. 

    Tingling or Numbness

    Tingling or numbness, otherwise known as diabetic neuropathy is damage to nerves that arises as a complication of high blood glucose levels. When blood glucose levels are elevated, it interferes with signals transmitted by nerves. In addition, the walls of small blood vessels are weakened, effectively cutting off blood supply to nerves. This usually happens in the outermost extremities, starting with the feet. 

     

  • TripAdvisor launches customized travel recommendations

    TripAdvisor has unveiled its latest search feature that presents users with personalized recommendations based on search history, travel preferences and site usage.

    The company announced its “Just for You” feature today and hopes it will make the entire searching and planning experience more relevant for site users.

    “By virtue of the insights and attributes that we’ve gathered from millions of traveler reviews and opinions, TripAdvisor is uniquely able to match travelers with their ideal hotels,” said Adam Medros, senior vice president, global product, in a press release.

    Searchers can now tag certain travel preferences as they surf through destinations like price, hotel class, amenities and brand. The travel site will log these tags, along with traveler’s previous search history and recommendations of other places, to deliver customized results on future travel inquiries.

    “With the new feature, we can not only match a traveler with their preferred type of hotel, but we can suggest the trendy, boutique hotel located downtown with a swimming pool because we know those are the specific hotel characteristics you like,” Medros continued.

    But how invasive is the new function?

    According to the Boston Globe, TripAdvisor claims that it only monitors activity on its website and does not track general browsing history. Members may grant the site access to their Facebook accounts for more personalized results.
