Uganda’s Kitamirike in Chelsea TV documentary

Even after the 2-1 win over Nigeria, Uganda has continued to shine worldwide. Just of recent I told you how Portsmouth scouts were keeping a sharp eye on striker Massa.
And now to put the icing on the cake, Premiership giants Chelsea did a documentary on former player Joel Kitamirike. Super Sport 6 first aired the documentary yesterday.
Kitamirike (23) is a Uganda-born who grew up in England and had duo citizenship. Actually, he was called up to the Uganda Cranes squad in June 2004 but did not play against the DR Congo as he refused to give up his British citizenship in order to get a Ugandan passport.
Under Ugandan immigration law it is not permitted to hold dual nationality.
Kitamirike won youth caps for England during his time at Chelsea and had a loan spell at Brentford and played as an amateur with Mansfield.
And last year, he signed for Columbus Crew in the USA’s Major League Soccer.
He was born in Uganda but moved to England at the age of four.
No more questions... he is worth the documentary. The documentary encompasses all the details I have mentioned above about Kitamirike.
Off record: he crossed the Nile to Kampala and he is still going places.
