Newly signed Kaizer Chiefs left back Godfrey “Jajja Walu” Walusimbi was one of the three players who joined the rest of the Uganda Cranes teammates for the Monday morning training ahead of Tanzania clash in the AFCON 2019 qualifiers.

Walusimbi, goalkeeper Salim Jamal and striker Edrisa Lubega all trained with the other players for the first time since being summoned.

After playing in his first game with Kaizer Chiefs during the 1-0 loss against SuperSport United on Saturday, Walusimbi wasted no time to join the rest of the teammates for national team duty.

Throughout the two hour session, Walusimbi looked lively with his customary quick and sharp turns off the ball and the lung bursting runs down the flank.
