The Cranes were dominant from start and after just five minutes, skipper Geoffrey Massa fired a long strike from 20 yards that eluded Djehani N’gussad for the opener.

The dominance continued yielding three successive corners by the quarter-hour mark for the Cranes.

Both sides were forced to make quick substitutions due to injuries, Serge Akakpo paved way for Fessou Placca in the 20th minute on the part of Togo, and midfielder Khalid Aucho making way for Geofrey Kizito for the hosts.

Before the break, midfielder William Luwagga Kizito on a counter fetched Godfrey Walusimbi who passed the ball to Miya Farouk, and he struck home the second goal on 40 minutes.

Four Minutes later Farouk scored the Cranes’ third goal from a well laid pass from Massa before half-volleying home for his second of the day and take the game beyond the visitors.

The second half witnessed a very wasteful Cranes team whilst the Togolese labored in search of a consolation, which was fruitless.
