Sofapaka FC and Uganadan goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya is confident that the Cranes can defend the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup to be played in Kenya next month.
The regional tournament is set to make its return after a one-year absence following lack of sponsorship in 2016.
The diminutive goalkeeper has confused many sports journalists who profile him as a Kenyan citizen due to his body physique and name which is linked to a Luhya community from the Western part of Kenya.

However, the keeper is currently working hard and focusing on representing Uganda in upcoming tournaments like CECAFA and his wish is to play in Europe for Chelsea FC.
“I would really be happy to be part of Uganda Cranes team,” he said to Kawowo.
“Indeed hard work never stops paying and hope one day to play in Europe. Am focused and very positive mentally.”
