AFTER watching Uganda Cranes go down in their opening match, national coach Bobby Williamson has hinted on making a number of changes to the team that will battle Sudan in their second game of the Africa Nations Championship finals.

In the wake of Uganda’s 2-0 defeat to Algeria where stand in skipper Owen Kasule and striker Tony Odur were sent off and thus suspended for today’s game, Williamson said that there was need for reorganising in a bid to win the last two group games.

“I will definitely reorganise the team and bring in new players. The good thing is Simeon (Masaba) will be coming back in defence and take command,” explained Williamson.

He said the final line-up would only be available after training.

But the Scot maintained that the team available to him would put up a good show tonight.

“I always say they are young and talented players around. They might just be 30% of the team we were preparing for the tournament, but they are good and can get a result against Sudan,” the coach said confidently.

Uganda needs to win their last two encounters, and hope that Algeria or Sudan falters, to advance to the next round of the tournament, the second biggest competition on the continent.

Apart from the two suspensions and absence of defender Edward Ssali, who was ruled out due to a heart problem, the team was in good shape.
