AFCON 2015 Group E qualifier: Guinea Vs Uganda – Wed, 19th Nov 2014 In Morocco

Gor Mahia left back, Godfrey Walusimbi returns to the Uganda Cranes fold as head coach, Micho named the team traveling to Morocco for the Guinea clash. Christened ‘Jjaja Walu’, Walusimbi was suspended for the 1 – 0 home victory against Ghana.

Micho has recalled Tusker’s holding midfielder, Khalid Aucho to the team after he missed even making the bench for the Saturday clash.

Of the players who played in the Ghana match, injured Yunus Sentamu misses the trip. The AS Vita striker limped off on the half hour mark and was replaced the lively Gor Mahia diminutive striker, Dan ‘Muzei’ Sserunkuma. Moses Oloya who was one of the unused substitutes against Ghana has been left behind.

The team, which had a recovery training session on Sunday morning, leaves Entebbe International Airport on Sunday evening aboard Qatar Airways. Uganda Cranes Media officer, Fred Katende confirmed to Kawowo Sports.

We shall reach Casablanca, Morocco on Monday at 11 a.m and our advance team has already booked us the hotel for accommodation and a training ground.

Guinea has hosted all her home games in Morocco in this campaign because of the deadly Ebola scourge that has been rampant in many West African nations.
