With the memories of the cold night in Mauritania still fresh, UG sports has learnt that the name Afriyie is not new to most Ugandans who followed the 1978 African Cup Of Nations final between Uganda Cranes and Ghana.

Soccer loving Ugadans quickly realised the similarity in names of the scorerers in both matches; 1978-Opoka Afriyie Bayie and 2021-Daniel Barnieh Afriyie.

Just like 1978, the final score was 2-0 in favour of the Ghanians all scored by Afriyie and the top goal scorer was Philp Omondi from Uganda same as Derrick Kakooza at this year’s tournament. What a coincidence!

Meanwhile Hippos coach Morley Byekwaso was voted as the best coach. The Hippos won the fair play award and the team of the tournament included two Ugandans namely Aziz Kayondo and Derrick Kakooza.
