On Wednesday our team participated in the second annual Uganda vs. USA soccer match.
It was not an entirely fare flight. They were much more talented than us. They were kind and loaned us three locals (including an excellent goalkeeper Andrew). It would have been a total blow out without his skill and talent at the net. This game was eagerly anticipated and much talked about in the village, it was an all out regional event.
Local residents were excited to come see the "muzungu" play their hometown soccer team. Final score 2-1. They won. Over 1000 locals attended the 4 pm game. This was a great opportunity to mingle with the locals.
Pepper was our only casualty. One broken nose. Did I mention this was full contact soccer?
