Wednesday
Iraq v Uganda

Uganda Cranes on Sunday left for an impromptu international friendly against Egypt due at 8:00pm today in Cairo’s Military stadium. The team is due to leave for Amman, Jordan, for an international friendly against Iraq on Wednesday.

Swalley Kenyi reports that FUFA has opted to honour the request to play the Pharaohs as they await world soccer body FIFA’s nod to continue the trip to Jordan and play Iraq.

In July Cranes, on FIFA’s advice, abandoned an invite to play against Iraq in Erbil City, 325km north of the capital Baghdad, for security concerns.

Speaking to New Vision before departure on Sunday, Cranes media officer Katende Malibu said the team will play Egypt and proceed to Jordan or return to Kampala depending on FIFA’s advice.

“We decided to honour Egypt’s request to play Cranes because they were quick to communicate. The trip to Jordan will be confirmed by midday tomorrow (today),” Malibu said.

The squad: B. Bwete, B. Ochan, A. Kisaliita, N. Wadada, S. Namwanja, M. Kaweesa, S. Okwi, Y. Mukisa, S. Kyeyune, H. Wasswa, J. Mpande, J. Mugabi, B. Majwega,R. Kasagga(capt.), F. Kalanda, A. Feni.
