The Uganda Cranes four match unbeaten run came to a halt when a determined West Nile side won 1-0.
The home side had promised to give the national team a run for their money and they indeed gave their fans great memories to cherish forever.
Second half substitute Sizza Olega who had replaced former U-17 National team striker Muhammed Shaban scored the only goal of the game in the 70th minute.
Earlier striker Rashid Agawu had a goal bound shot hit the cross bar.
James Alitho started in goal for Uganda Cranes Regional team before Mathias Kigonya replaced him in the 30th minute.
Kigonya later paved way for Proline young goalie, Keni Saidi in the 60th minute.
Uganda Cranes created a series of chances throughout the game but the defence of the home side and goalie Nisar Kasim remained solid.
The Cranes technical department used two different sides for either halves of the game.
The national team regional tours are exclusively sponsored by Uganda Cranes’ main sponsors Airtel Uganda and partners Nile Breweries Limited.
