“FUFA confirms replacement made by @UgandaCranes coach @Seb_Desabre for injured Denis Iguma with Kirizestom Ntambi of Ethiopian side Coffee FC ahead of the camp due in Cairo 17th-22nd March. Uganda will play Tanzania on 24th March 2019 in the AFCON Qualifiers. @kawowosports
Ntambi is regarded as one of the most talented and intelligent footballers in the current generation but has rarely been presented with chance to showcase his ability with the national team.
He is a product of the now defunct Jogoo Young and last played for SC Villa in Uganda where he helped the club lift the 2015 Uganda Cup.
