Having cleared the air and minds of many that they can do it, star studded, Senegal, the Lions of Teranga are welcome to the Cranes’ den this coming Saturday. Emmanuel Okwi’s late sweet work in Luanda, Angola has just given every Cranes’ stakeholder a fresh new breather with the crucial World Cup qualifier tie in sight. Even the issue of the big trio retiring will fade, healing the wound quicker. The Cranes’ performance is just timely, suiting perfection.
Well, build up ties are so much valuable in getting ready for a key international engagement but the Cranes had internal ties with the Kobs and Hippos. Senegal mauled Liberia 3-1 in Dakar on Saturday and rumour has it they will have a friendly with Kenya before setting for Kampala. Discipline in the Novembre 11 Stadium was remarkable, only left back Godftrey Walusimbi being booked. It is now on a higher rate that the 40000 crowd at Namboole will be behind the boys for the entire nerve-wracking 90 minutes. Go Cranes!!!
