Uganda Cranes to depart for Kenya on Saturday

Gladys ZAWEDDE

Uganda Cranes will depart for Kenya on Saturday 14th-November aboard Uganda Airlines at Entebbe International Airport 10:00am.

Johnathan McKnistry’s charges will play against South-Sudan on Monday 16th-November at Nyayo Stadium in Kenya to complete the double header.

The Cranes will be without defender Joseph Ochaya’s who is suspended and is likely to be replaced by Vipers’ Disan Galiwango in the starting lineup.

The medical team is thoroughly assessing Ronald Mukiibi and Khalid Aucho’s injury concerns. The duo were withdrawn after sustaining injuries with Halid Lwaliwa coming in for Mukiibi and Karim Watambala replacing Aucho.

It was a hard fought win as the Cranes struggled to defeate South Sudan 1-0 at St Mary’s Stadium Kitende, thanks to Lwaliwa’s late header.

Uganda Cranes are on seven points tied with Burkina Faso who beat Malawi 3-1 on Thursday night.

They will be expected back in Uganda on Tuesday 17th November at 1:30pm.
