Kampala, Uganda | THE INDEPENDENT | Uganda Cranes went top of AFCON qualifying Group B with four points after they beat Malawi 2-0 at Mandela Stadium on Sunday.
Uganda’s two goals came off defensive errors by the visitors who struggled to sock the pressure. First Emma Okwi latched onto a long over head ball that beat a defender, to thump in the opening goal, before Fahad Bayo shrugged of tackles, to drill his later in the second half.
It is a flying start for new Coach Jonathan McKinstry, who opened his era with a goalless draw away to Burkina Faso. Burkina are set to join Uganda at 4 points, as they lead South Sudan 2-0 in Juba.

Denis Onyango (GK, Captain ) 18, Nico Wadada 14, Bevis Mugabi 5, Joseph Ochaya 2, Murushid Juuko 4, Khalid Aucho 8, Mike Azira 23, Faruku Miya 17,Emmanuel Okwi 7, William Kizito 10 & Fahad Bayo 13.
