Uganda continued their fairytale start at the ongoing African games in Accra with yet another win on Monday evening.

This was their second victory in as many games played so far at the groupstages.

After picking a 2-1 result against heavyweights Nigeria in opener, Africa champions Senegal are the latest side to succumb to the East African giants.

The flying Eagles beat debutants South Sudan 1-0 courtesy of Sadiq Isiyaka, moving level on points ( 3) with Senegal.

Group B action winds up on Friday as Uganda tussle it out against South Sudan at University of Ghana Sports Stadium.
