Afcon 2017: Cranes Set Off for Zimbabwe, Botswana Ties

Uganda Cranes contingent headed to Zimbabwe are expected to arrive in Harare at midday Monday ahead of their friendly duel against the hosts on Tuesday.

Head Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ named a squad of nineteen players on Tuesday who will take part in the buildup and possibly the crucial 2017 Afcon qualifier against Botswana over the weekend.

Among the stars that travelled include Werder Bremen forward Melvyn Lorenzen who has since received his Ugandan passport and only awaiting documentation to be completed by the German government.

The team left the country in the wee hours of Monday morning aboard Ethiopian airlines and were destined to connect through Ethiopia where they (would) be joined by St. Georges duo Robert Odongkara and Isaac Isinde.

Three players; Yassar Mugerwa, unhealthy Tonny Mawejje and first choice custodian Dennis Onyango are scheduled to arrive in Harare before tomorrow’s match.

Mawejje had a league game against IBV on Sunday in Iceland and travelled immediately after while Onyango is expected at the PSL awards gala on Monday night.

The Cranes will use the build up to grade and dine tune the team before heading to Botswana where they play on Saturday 4th June whereas Tuesday’s hosts Zimbabwe play Malawi at the National Sports Stadium on the 5th of June.

The friendly will be played at the Ruharo Astroturf and not the national stadium as was earlier reported.
