Sserunkuma targeting more Uganda Cranes’ call ups
Gor Mahia forward Dan Sserunkuma made a dream start in his Uganda Cranes’ career scoring once as the Cranes were held to a 2-2 draw by Rwanda in an international friendly match in Kigali on February 6th .
Sserunkuma, named as the Kenyan Premier League player of the year says that is a positive step in his flourishing career promising to offer more for club and country.
“It was great scoring in my first appearance for the national team and it gave me pride to be called up and actually play the whole 90 minutes for my country. I never felt new in the team because I have played with and interacted with most of the players in the national team,” Sserunkuma told Michezoafrika.com.
The striker who scored 17 goals in the league last season helping Gor Mahia to a second place finish in the league now targets to be a regular in the Uganda Cranes Squad.
He believes that the Cranes have the right quality to represent the region in both the African Cup of Nations and even the World Cup.
“This is just the start for me and I have faith that I will have many more to come. I not only want to play for the national team but make an impact. It will be my joy scoring goals that will see Cranes go to the African Cup of Nations or the World Cup. We have always failed to make it because of a very small margin. I believe we have the best players to do the job,” he adds.
Sserunkuma will be in action this weekend for his club Gor Mahia when they take on Anse Reunion from Seychelles in the CAF Confederations Cup match. The match will be played on Saturday.
