Tusker youngster Aucho impresses for Uganda Cranes

06 December 2013, 10:22

Nairobi - Khalid Aucho is one player Tusker FC fans always call out for praise and he has showed why in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.

The midfielder has been impressive for the Cranes in their passage to the last eight and has elicited praise from players and coaches alike.

He was superb again in the win over Sudan Thursday, prompting head coach Micho Srejedovic to throw in a word for the talented midfielder.

" He was excellent. He has been all tournament. I think he has taken us to another level.

" Today he scored but he has been the best player for us in midfield and to think how young he is shows just how lucky Ugandan football currently is.

His captain Emma Okwi too had a shout out for Aucho.

" It was an incredible performance from him and the hope is that he can go very far in his playing career.

" So far he has been very good and I hope that he can continue that way as the tournament goes on, he added.

The Cranes take on Tanzania in the quarterfinals, Saturday in Mombasa.
