All the players are set we have no fresh injury concerns and the mood in the camp is high ahead of the game.
Wadada was part of the Uganda U20 team that played against Rwanda
” We are going to capitalize on our home advantage to see that a win is in our hands before we think of the second leg encounter in Rwanda in a week’s time.”
The captain was asked whether there are any Rwanda stars that the team have ear marked for tight marking especially the dangerous Savio Nshuti but he says, the cranes are ready for the 11 players that Rwanda will field,
