Basena was impressed with the performance unsettled Uganda Cranes displayed at the Borg El Arab Stadium against Egypt in Alexandria last night.
Mohammad Salah scored the only goal at the 6th minute that earned the Pharaoh three points hence making them group E table leaders.
Speaking in post-match interview, the Uganda Cranes’ interim coach admitted defeat but praised his side for putting up spirited fight.
“We lost gallantly. We put up a spirited performance away from home. I am impressed by the team’s overall display” said Basena.
The results enable Egypt to lead the table with nine points as the Cranes follow with seven points, whereas Ghana who had beaten Congo five goals to nil are third with five points whereas Congo seats hopelessly at the bottom of the log.
Reports from FUFA website www.fufa.co.ug show the team will land in the country on Friday to plan on how to resuscitate.
