Andrew Mwesigwa’s chances of featuring for the Cranes against Senegal next weekend are high after he played 90 minutes for his club FC Ordabasy FC in the Kazakhstan Premier League on Sunday.

The Cranes skipper was part of the Ordabasy backline that kept a clean sheet in the 4-0 win over Shakhter Karagandy.

“I played 90 minutes and am feeling better”, he told Kawowo Sports after going through the game unscathed.

Asked whether this was testimony to prove he is declared fit ahead of next September 7 clash between Senegal and Uganda in Marrakesh, Morocco after suffering a sprained ankle in the 3-1 loss to Astana, the ex-SC Villa and IBV centre back revealed he played on an injection though team medics said he is now fine.

“I played after receiving an injection but the doctors declared me fit. I will see how I cope in training in the next few days”, he added.

Mwesigwa will join the Cranes later today in Istanbul, Turkey for a four day training camp.

Meanwhile, Uganda Cranes left Nairobi at 3am and scheduled to touch down at Ataturk airport at 10.05am and will head straight to the World of Wonders Hotel where they will be accommodated. The team will use Ataturk stadium for trainings that will be conducted under flood lights.
