Ugandan youngsters Ibrahim Kasule and Frank Ssebufu continue to light up the MLS Next Pro League with their side, New York Red Bulls II.

The former Wakiso Giants FC stars were both on target as New York Red Bulls II hit Cincinnati 3-1 in the wee hours of Monday at the MSU Soccer Park.

Ssebufu netted in the first minute with a header off Copeland Berkeley's cross to give his side a fast start to the game.

It made it two goals and two assists for the forward, who has played 14 matches since he joined in March this year.

Meanwhile, Kasule struck in the 25th minute with left-footed effort after receiving a pass from Malian native Ronald Donkor.

The playmaker also assisted Davi Alexandre in the 40th minute to make it two-goal involvements on the day.

He has managed eight goal involvements in only 13 matches, including five goals that have all come in the past six matches.

Kasule left Wakiso Giants for the US-based outfit, having scored five goals, adding six assists in the first round of the Uganda Premier League.
