Uganda v Liberia

By 4pm Wednesday, 30 players including unattached Godfrey Walusimbi were in camp as coach Micho drilled the team on fitness and game reaction for over two and half hours under the dusky condition of Namboole Stadium in Kampala.

St George goalkeeper Robert Odongkara also reported to camp to join his teammates Robert Sentongo and Isaac Isinde who reported two days back.

Sweden based Mutumba has only two caps for Uganda with his last outing being a disastrous World Cup Qualifier against Senegal while Odongkara’s last cap came in 2010 during the CECAF Senior Challenge Cup.

At the end of the exercise it was obvious that all the players are primed for action on Saturday as they all turned out as early with. Walusimbi, a dependable left back who has ably filled retired Nestroy Kizito’s shoes at left back, is doubtful for the Liberia clash returned to training first on the pitch as circled it to gain fitness.

“For me he is the best left back in Africa but now he is not in a clear state of mind to play on Saturday,” said Micho praised the former SC Villa left-back.

Speculation is rife Walusimbi who scored the equaliser against Senegal at Namboole was summoned back to camp after Alex Kakuba and Joseph Ochaya the other possible candidates for the spot failed to impress Micho.

Micho again took time off to drum it into the ears of the players that they should not pressurise themselves but must be aware that Ugandans are very expectant of a super outing at in the upcoming qualifiers.

The Serb is today expected to make another trimming on the team lost 3-0 to Libya in Tripoli last weekend.

SQUAD: Denis Onyango, Abby Dhaira, Hamza Muwonge, Ali Kimera, Robert Odongkara, Denis Iguma, Joseph Ochaya, Nicholas Wadada, Isaac Isinde, Joseph Mpande, Said Kyeyune, Hamis Kiiza, Moses Oloya, Baba Kizito, Luwagga Kizito, Andy Mwesigwa (cpt), Emmanuel Okwi, Tonny Mawejje, Godfrey Walusimbi, Martin Mutumba, Massa Geofrey, Henry Kalungi, Alex Kakuba, Henry Kisekka, Dan Sserunkuma, Boban Zirintuusa, Richard Kasagga and Robert Ssentongo.
