Moses Oloya Called to Ugandan Squad Despite His Club Teams Slow Start

KAMPALA, Uganda – After losing a game against Energomash Belgorod by 3-0 on Wednesday, Moses Oloya of FC Kuban Krasnodar will have more than one thing on his mind. His recent loss and probably the invitation to play in the Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier against Comoros on September 4th.
Perhaps, it is fair to assume that matters at home will occupy his mind much more. After all, a win guarantees a spot in the AFCON. It will be a chance to make history considering that the country last attended the games in 1978.
Thoughts of qualifying would be a much welcome distraction from his club’s current struggles. The in-demand winger was acquired in June to help turn around a difficult FC Kuban season. However, things got worse on Wednesday when they exited the Russian Cup in an embarrassing defeat to a third division league team.
Individually, it doesn’t look too bad for the Ugandan midfielder; he scored his first goal for the club on Sunday against Mordovia Saransk in a 3-1 victory. Late in the first half, he curled the ball from the edge of the 18-yard box past the goalkeeper.
Oloya will be hoping that despite his club’s poor form, his flash of brilliance against Mordovia will earn him a starting place against the Comoros.
The 23-year-old midfielder was one of the first two recruits by the club’s new Romanian-born coach, Daniel Vasile Petrescu.
