Uganda Cranes had drawn goal-less with Cameroon in the second build up before the CHAN 2016 finals in Rwanda.
Like the first build up game three days earlier against Gabon, the game on Wednesday was played behind closed doors.
Uganda’s best chance of the first half fell to Richard Kasagga whose header off Joseph Ochaya’s corner was cleared off the line by Alexandre Kombi.
The visitors were a great taste for Uganda given the physicality and speed – similar to the kind of opposition expected at CHAN Rwanda where Uganda is pooled alongside Mali, Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Cameroon’s Junior Mfede shot the post but it was the hosts with the best chance to wrap up the game with an indirect free-kick that Martin Kizza was fouled in the forbidden area.
Uganda departs for Rwanda on Saturday.
