UGANDA CRANES GOALKEEPER ODONGKARA LEAVES ETHIOPIA AFTER 8 YEARS
Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Robert Odongkara has signed a two year contract with Guinea Premier league club, AC Horoya.

By David Isabirye - July 26, 2019


Since departing Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) Football Club in 2011, Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Robert Odongkara sought for greener pastures in Ethiopia.

The lanky goalkeeper has played at two Ethiopia Premier League clubs – St George (seven seasons) and Adama City (one season).

After eight seasons of diligent service, Odongkara made the bold decision to transfer to another country – Guinea in West Africa.


Now, Odongkara will play at Guinea Premier league club, AC Horoya.

This comes after agreeing terms with the Guinea reigning champions on a two year deal.

Odongkara formerly played at Kitgum based Northern Elephants and Entebbe’s Mupero Tanda in the Uganda lower tier leagues before switching sides to Sports Club Villa in the top flight.

He is the direct replacement for AC Horoya injured goalkeeper Khadhim N’Diaye.

The Senegalese suffered a career threatening double leg fracture during a CAF Champions league duel against Morocco’s Wydad Casablanca in April 2019.

Odongkara has played for Uganda Cranes since 2013 and earned 30 caps to his name tag.

For a long time now, Odongkara has been skipper Dennis Onyango’s understudy in the goal posts and he is widely tipped to take over from Onyango upon retirement. :thumbs:
Onyango is done with AFCON to give others a chance, but will go to Qatar. :thumbs:

Odongkara also played in two Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) tournaments; 2017 hosted by Gabon and lately 2019 in Egypt.

In Ethiopia, Odongkara won five Ethiopia Premier League honours and was named the goalkeeper of the season six times, albeit all with St George Football Club.

ODONGKARA’S CAREER AT A GLANCE:

Northern Elephants F.C (Kitgum) – 2002 To 2003

Mupero Tanda F.C (Entebbe) – 2004 To 2006

Club Sportive (Entebbe) – 2007

Sports Club Villa (Kampala) – 2008 To 2010

Uganda Revenue Authority (URA) – 2011

St George (Ethiopia)- 2012 To 2018

Adama City (Ethiopia) – 2018 To 2019

AC Horoya (Guinea) – 2019 – Todate

Is that career progression or step back. It’s like moving from Kenyan league to Ugandan. Whatever happened to Nigerian League, South African or any of Egypt, Tunisian, Algerian or Moroccoan leagues. Then that will be termed stepping up. :taunt:

Do you know anything about recent African footie? I doubt it!

Horoya is a well funded club, that is way better than any Nigerian club.
Look up 9ja club's recent record in Africa. :boo:

The lad will get more CAF exposure with this move, than he would have if he had joined any 9ja club.
