Express talisman Eric Kambale is looking up to finishing the football season on a high after enjoying a fruitful campaign for the club.
Uganda’s President Yoweri Museveni suspended sports activities, among other things, for 42 days last Friday as the country grapples with the latest strain of Coronavirus.
But the football fraternity is confident they will be able to complete the four remaining StarTimes Uganda Premier League (SUPL) games when the situation improves.
And one man that badly wants to complete the season sportingly is Express striker Kambale, who has scored 17 goals across all competitions so far.
His 15 goals in the league have seen Express go into this forced break leading the standings on 58 points one and two ahead of URA and Vipers respectively.
“It has been a great season,” the forward told the club website, “If you had told me at the start of this season that I would perform this good I would simply laugh at you.
“I thank God, the technical team and fellow players, but it is not done yet. We have four league games to go and we are also in the Cup semifinals and for me.
“Hopefully we win a double, but at worst we should win silverware at the end of it all.”
Kambale was called up for national team duty as Uganda prepared for a friendly against South Africa this month.
But because of illness, he neither linked up with the team nor travelled for the game in Johannesburg.
“It’s sad I didn’t due to a health related setback but I’m now fine and training.”
