Uganda first qualified for Africa’s premier competition in 1962, the same year the country got her independence.

But they have not made the finals since 1978 when they were losing finalists to hosts Ghana.

This Saturday, moments before the Cranes take on Zambia, a few of those living legends will be recognized by local federation, Fufa.

“We believe that is another way to inspire the young Cranes so that they can do us proud after many times for trying,” said Rogers Mulindwa, the Fufa publicist, while addressing the media after the Cranes training at Namboole on Thursday.

Jimmy Kirunda was skipper in 1978 and he is expected to lead the living ’78 legends like Polly Ouma, Tom Lwanga, Paul Ssali, Jimmy Muwanga, Timothy Ayeikoh, Moses Sentamu, Mike Diku, Ashe Mukasa, Hussein Matovu and Barnabas Mwesigwa.

John Agadi, captain of the 1962 side, will also lead his living colleagues including Joseph Mabirizi, Jimmy Ssemugabi, Sam Bukenya and Baker Kasigwa.
