“We have been in a penalty approach today because the game might end in a draw that might necessitate penalty shootouts,” stressed Timbe.

However, the Cranes team trained without coach Micho who is out of the country for official duties according to Mujib Kasule.

“The coach went to Ethiopia to watch Ugandans who play for St. George and see how they play,’’ stressed Mujib who noted that the coach had got keen interest in goal keeper Robert Odongkara , Isaac Isinde and striker Robert Ssentongo who were supposed to feature for their club in a CAF champions league match over the weekend.

“The coach wanted to see if they could be used in the world cup qualifier game against Senegal,’’ noted Mujib.

The Uganda Cranes team is scheduled to play Tanzania’s Taifa Stars in the return leg of the CHAN championships in Kampala on Saturday 27.

Uganda beat Tanzanians by a goal to nil thanks to a second half strike from SC Victoria defender Dennis Iguma.
