It looked like Papaiss Cisse’s goal after 36 minutes would be enough to give Senegal its second win in the African qualifying Group J, for the 2014 World Cup to be held in Brazil.
Newcastle’s Papiss Cisse scored for Senegal today
But a late equalizer from the penalty spot by Godfrey Walusimbi, gave Uganda a surprise point against the favored Senegal side.
But Senegal still currently head their group with 4 points from their two games, and Liberia are due to play Angola tomorrow to complete the qualifying games scheduled for the summer.
Papiss played the whole game for Senegal, and as well as scoring he also managed to pick up a yellow card after 63 minutes.
Former Newcastle target, Toulouse left back Cheikh M’Bengue, played the whole game for Senegal.
Newcastle defensive midfielder Cheick Tiote should be action later today, when the strong Ivory Coast side take on Morocco in Group C.
And in the first shock of the Euro 2012 Championships today, Denmark beat Holland 1-0, with a goal after 24 minutes from Krohn-Dehli.
The Denmark back four were in terrific form, with captain Daniel Agger leading the way for his country, with an excellent performance at the back.
Holland simply missed too many chances today, and the World Cup finalists are now in danger of being eliminated, as they have to play Germany in their next group game.
