Round of 32:
FT’ Express 0(3)-0(4) SC Villa
Round of 16: Onduparaka vs SC Villa
SC Villa are through to the next stage of the 2022 Stanbic Uganda Cup after eliminating Express 3-4 on penalties. The round of 32 game which took place at Wankulukuku on Tuesday had ended 0-0 in the 90 minutes.
Skipper Enock Walusimbi, George Ssenkaba and Arthur Kiggundu scored for Express before Faisal Ssekyanzi and Eric Kambale watched in agony as their kicks get skewed wide and saved by the Villa substitute goalkeeper Yiga Joseph respectfully.
Saddam Masereka, Nicholas Kabonge, Amir Kakomo and Ibrahim Saddam Juma converted for the Jogoos.
SC Villa who eliminated Super Eagles at the round of 64, will now travel to Arua to face Onduparaka on a yet to be confirmed date for a place in the quarterfinals.
The victory keeps Petros Koukouras in hope of becoming the first Greek to win any trophy as a football coach in Uganda.
Petros Koukouras’ opposite number James Odoch however, remain uncertain about his future at Express.
The former player for Mukwano Gwabangi is yet to win any game since replacing another club legend Wasswa Bbosa who was sacked under unclear circumstances.
