Uganda Cranes player and Hearts forward David Obua has apologized to the nation, his coach and team over his unbecoming conduct during the weekend game.

Obua was fronted by the Cranes Captain Ibrahim Sekajja, Deputy Captain Andy Mwesigwa and the goal keeper Denis Onyango.
Sekajja said the team has accepted the apology and appealed to the nation to forget the incident.
He said Obua has been there for the Uganda Cranes having featured in many games and appealed to the nation and the team to focus on upcoming games.
The Uganda Cranes Coach Bobby Williamson says Obua apologised to him earlier adding that he understood the frustration felt by the player.
