Micho Sredojevic registered his first victory on home soil in his new role as Cranes head coach against Liberia in the 2014 World Cup qualifier courtesy of a 4th minute Tonny Mawejje strike to claim all three points and climb to second in Group J.

The Serb then turned his attention to Saturday’s crunch game against Angola, who could only force a 1-1 draw against table toppers Senegal only to have Striker Emmanuel Okwi picked up a thigh injury during the session.

The Aspire Academy is a globally recognised national sports academy for the development of Qatar’s talented sportsmen and had booked the stadium facilities earlier on in May to accommodate a group of 50 kids, of which, 18 are Ugandans and a couple of professional trainers and scouts are to use the pitch two sessions a day; morning and evening.

According to Livingstone Ssewannyana the stadium chairperson told ChimpReports that they were not informed early enough about Cranes intentions to use the stadium through the week.

As a result the sad cranes officials including Livingstone Kyambadde and Moses Magogo instructed the coach to take the team to the outside pitch.

In the mean-time the management agreed with federation officials to take the training programme to the management by Tuesday (today) and Cranes will be allowed to use the stadium facilities effective today.

However it’s not clear if Namboole is going to compensate Aspire academy that had hired the stadium or they will be using Namboole together with Cranes but at different time schedule.

The Cranes will now use the stadium for three days and leave the last day which is Friday for Angola to feel the turf of Namboole.
