Sensational goalkeeper

The Ugandan goalkeeper played a key roll in Kampala B18 securing the Gothia cup title against the Swedish side GAIS. He scored 1-0 (1-1) on the 11 meter spot. He also saved 2 penalties during the shoot-out before he took care of the game winning kick which he executed beautifully á la Panenka (or Totti, Zidane Pirlo, Ramos if you like).
