Jjuuko is suspended for second yellow card.
2019 AFCON qualifiers
Uganda Cranes v Lesotho
Cape Verde v Tanzania
Murushid Jjuuko will not be available for the Uganda Cranes 2019 AFCON qualifiers against Lesotho. Jjuuko is suspended for second yellow card.
Jjuuko was among the three Uganda Cranes players who were booked in the goalless draw against Tanzania last Saturday alongside defenders Nicholas Wadada and Godfrey Walusimbi. He picked his first yellow card during Cranes 1-0 win over Cape Verde in their opening game.
Timothy Awany, Bevis Mugabi and Isaac Isinde are some options Uganda Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre will look at as replacements for Jjuuko.
Despite the goalless draw to Tanzania, Cranes remained top of Group L (4 points) which consists of Tanzania, Lesotho and Cape Verde. Lesotho and Tanzania each have two points, while Cape Verde is bottom of the table with one point. Lesotho and Cape Verde also settled to 1-1 draw over the weekend.
