Former Uganda Cranes captain Ibrahim Sekagya and Express FC Coach Matia Lule have been added to the Cranes technical team ahead of the 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Egypt.
“Basena made the request to have both Lule and Sekagya to reinforce the technical team so that Fred Kajoba concentrates on the goalkeeping area. FUFA honoured Basena’s request and we believe the new additions will be of great value to the Cranes,”FUFA spokesperson Ahmed Hussein said.
