The Werder Bremen forward is expected to feature in the friendly against Zimbabwe

Will it be Uganda or Germany? That is the question Germany based Uganda striker Lorenzen Mevlyn who jetted in on Tuesday must quickly find answers to as he prepares to make his debut with the Cranes.

The Werder Bremen forward arrived in the country yesterday to join his counterparts for training ahead of the AFCON qualifier against Botswana on June 4.

He was received by family members Alex Musiime (uncle) and Grandfather Joseph Musaalo alongside FUFA’s Patrick Ntege at the airport.

He is expected to feature in the build up to that game against Zimbabwe in Harare upon acquisition of Uganda a Ugandan passport, though he hasn’t made his mind on whether he will permanently play for the country.

“I’m glad to be here again; it’s my fourth time here. I had a chat with coach Micho last year and I resolved with my personal coach and we decided to do a friendly with the team, but I have to make up my mind; I want to get to know the other players and coach and see how they work and I’m looking forward to seeing the guys,” Lorenzen said.

“I grew up in Germany and I have relatives and parents from Uganda so I have to decide later whether I feature permanently for the Cranes, when I go back to Germany” Lorenzen a son to Drake Mugisa and Martina Lorenzen who live in London and Germany respectively said.
