Yeovil Town defender Bevis Mugabi was part of a Uganda Cranes squad that lost 2-1 against hosts Niger on Saturday evening. The second of their June friendly internationals came at the Stade General Seyni Kountche in Niamey, as part of a mini-tournament that included the Central African Republic, who Uganda had lost 1-0 against earlier in the week.
Both Niger goals were scored by 21 year old Victorien Adebayor, whilst right back Nicholas Wadada netted a consolation for Uganda towards the end. For the second game running, Mugabi was named on the bench. Whilst we're certain that he didn't enter the field of play in his previous match, details on the substitutions for this fixture are sketchy, with FUFA and the Ugandan national press only recording the teamsheet, rather than any in-game changes. If we can confirm the substitutions, we'll add them in later.
The Ugandan squad will spend Sunday in Niger and are due to fly home on Monday, at which point Bevis should commence his summer break.
