Ugandan goalkeeper Mathias Kigonya remains confident he will make his return to the Cranes national team.

The Kenya-based keeper with Sofapaka has been snubbed for two years now, but insists he will become a better keeper for his club.

Kigonya last featured for the national team at the 2016 CAF African Nations Championship tournament in Rwanda and has since been ignored since his move to the Kenya Premier League.

“I am positive;” the former Bright Stars and Soana number one told Futaa.

“In football you just have to be positive and work on improving everyday as a player,” he added before admitting it will be tough to return.

“I know it is tough but, I am still sure I will get the chance soon.”

Kigonya has been arguably the best goalkeeper in the KPL for the past two seasons and was chosen to be part of the KPL All Stars that played games in Spain last year.

“I am determined to be a better keeper for my club and that way I will attract the attention of the coach back home and who knows, I may be back sooner than imagined,” he added.
