Sekajja: Cranes Look “Solid”

That form comes in stark contrast to the one that saw them fail to even qualify for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations, and Red Bull Salzburg captain Sekajja has spoken of his delight at how far the team have come since then; he retired from the national team after the failed 2012 Gabon African Cup of Nations campaign.

“I think the more Cranes play together, and train, the more understanding that is beginning to show amongst the team. And whoever comes in and does their job, our shape is very solid at the moment,” the defender told

“And I think as long as we’ve got that base defensively we know we’ve got the players who can create a bit of magic at any time.”

Uganda must beat Angola and Senegal away in September to progress to the next round of qualifiers.

The Cranes lie second on five points, one behind leaders Senegal. Liberia and Angola are ties on four.

Meanwhile, Moroccan referees Redouane Jiyed, Mohamed Abdelaziz and El Mehraji Lahmidi and Hicham Tiazi have been appointed match officials for the Saturday game.

Congolese Marcel Gono is the official adviser while Obukadata Dominic Oneya, a Nigerian, is the match commissioner.
