Following the Cranes 3 nil demolition of Rwanda in Kitende, the Rwandese Amavubi Stars are tasked with a huge task of overturning that deficit.
With all odds in Uganda’s favor to qualify past Rwanda, Uganda Cranes Coach Moses Basena thinks that it is not yet a done deal.
Speaking to ChimpReports after Thursday’s last training session held at African Bible University ground in Lubowa, the Interim Coach said: “It’s a tricky situation we are in where everyone thinks it’s easy for us to go through.”
“It’s the gospel I’m trying to preach to the team that we try to go there and give our very best against a good and physical Rwandese side. It’s a complete new game that we are starting on a new chapter.”
The 18-man Squad that will face Rwanda this Saturday has had some new exclusion and inclusion, with Savio Kabugo as a major highlight after the towering defender left the camp for trials in South Africa:
“The new ones have come in to give us alternatives and those who have left have gone to look for their future,” said Basena.
Timothy Awany, the KCCA FC defender who had missed the first leg tie after flying out of the country, made the list for the return leg.
