Uganda beat Lesotho to close in on 2019 AFCON

Farouk Miya scored twice to give Uganda a 2-0 win over Lesotho in Tuesday's Africa Cup of Nations qualifier in Maseru.

Miya outpaced the hosts' backline and unleashed a fierce shot to open the scoring in the sixth minute, and then doubled the visitors' tally 29 minutes late with a free kick.

The win was coach Sebastien Desabre's first competitive victory as Uganda boss, but Maliehe has warned the Frenchman that his side will look to avenge...
