Uganda cranes friendly against South Sudan which was slated for tomorrow has been pushed to March 3. The match was initially organized to celebrate the new state’s recognition by the confederation of African Football as a member of CAF. It was was pushed forward because it collided with the state’s independence celebrations.
The March fixture just suits both
countries simply because around that time FIFA President Sepp Joseph Blatter will be visiting the country. However, cranes coach Bobby Williamson insists that the team will go on with training as a way of sharpening his troops ahead of the AFCON 2013 qualifier against Congo Brazzaville on February 29.
After failing to make to the finals in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon, Uganda is looking at ending its 33 years of waiting to compete at the biggest competition on the African continent.
