Former KCCA star and StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) latest export, Mustafa Kizza, put up a starring performance on his debut for Montreal Impact on Sunday.
The Ugandan international set up Montreal Impact’s winner after coming off the bench in the second half following his off-season transfer to the Major league Soccer (MLS) club.
Impact twice came from behind to edge DC United 3-2 and qualify for the play-offs for the first time in four years.
Kizza came on in the 71st minute, replacing Amar Sedjic, with the score at 2-1 in favour of DC United.
Donovan Pines and Ola Kamara had put DC United into the lead inside thirty three minutes while Borjan Kirk had levelled for Thierry Henry’s side.
Three minutes after coming on, Impact equalised through Kenyan skipper Victor Wanyama, who headed home a corner in the 74th minute.
With two minutes to the final whistle, Kizza combined well with Mason Toye, the latter’s low cross for the victory.
The result sees Impact finish ninth in the Eastern Conference, booking themselves a date with the New England Revolution for a knockout game on Friday.
