“We haven’t talked to any team for a friendly game but I can assure you that Cranes will have its training until January 8, before flying out to South Africa on January 9,” Magogo told ChimpSport.

He added: “Hosts and organisers are expecting us to be there (South Africa) by that date but if any opportunity of a friendly game comes up, we shall let you know.”

He also revealed that the Federation has decided to have the trainings from Uganda because they don’t have money to train from South Africa or any other country.

“Camping away from Uganda may cost us like $40,000. As the Federation, that money can do some other activities if it is there,” added Magogo.

Cranes are training both morning and evening from Mandela national stadium and they will be given a two days break towards Christmas but later on, they are expected to camp at Sky hotel.

The first and last time that Uganda participated in the CHAN championships held in Sudan 2011, Cranes still had “intense” training without a friendly game and they ended in group stages after scoring one goal courtesy of Sadam Juma.
