The Uganda Cranes team set to open the 2017 Afcon qualifiers will have their last training match at the Namboole stadium at 10 AM. A total of 25 players are in camp with Gor Mahia’s Geoffrey Walusimbi being the last to arrive two days ago.

“We are having our last training session beginning at 10AM for about one-hour. The training will be closed from the media and public. Botswana is also expected to train on the pitch later at 4pm,” Hamza Nsereko, Cranes media officer in charge of the game told ChimpReports.

Hamza further revealed that they are expecting Portugal-based William Luwagga Kizito to join the rest of the squad later today.

“The squad is fresh with no injuries. We have 25 players in camp and we expect Luwagga Kizito to join the team later today.” He added.

Uganda is pooled in group D alongside Comoros, Burkina Faso and their Saturday’s opponents Botswana. Only one team will qualify for the finals scheduled to take place in Gabon early in 2017. All the teams in a group will face each other in a round robin format both home and away.
The replay of the aborted Uganda cup final match between SC Villa and KCC FC stands in uncertainty after Villa’s president Eng. Ben Misagga assured the media that his team will only honour the match if it is played for eighteen minutes and not full ninety.

“We are not going to replay the game for full 90 minutes. If we are to honour the game, rx then it will be to play only and only the remaining 18 minutes that were left as indicated by the referee’s match report. No more!” Eng. Misagga assured.

According to Misagga, there is no law that Villa will have defied by their stand and asked Fufa to use the same rule that was used against Express fc that saw Villa awarded six points from reverse ties abandoned.

The said match was abandoned on the 72nd minute after KCCA FC fans stormed the playing area protesting cases of poor conduct of controversial center referee Robert Donney at Kyamate sports ground in Ntungamo last Saturday. KCCA FC has not yet issued an official statement but is expected later on Friday evening.
