EGYPTIAN coach Muhammad Abbas is still in charge of the national soccer team The Cranes, according to the FUFA normalisation committee secretary Patrick Isiagi.

Earlier reports had indicated that the committee could no longer maintain the Egyptian tactician financially, implying that they wanted to terminate his contract.

“It is not true. Abbas is here on a three-year contract which has not lasted even a year. We were just appealing for assistance from those who could help and we are still waiting for an answer,” Isiagi said.

The Cranes are set to play away to Ghana’s Black Stars on September 3 but up to now the team has not been summoned to start training due to lack of funds.

Meanwhile midfielder Noah ‘Babadi’ Kasule has promised Ghana’s most prized asset, Michael Essien, yet another terrifying outing when the two nations encounter in their 2006 World/Nations Cup qualifier in Kumasi.

Cranes play the Black Stars at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium in a fixture, Chelsea’s Essien and teammates will want to win to solidify their qualifying credentials.

Yet Kasule, whose display against Ghana in June last year, forced Ghana’s coach Ratomir Dujkovic into substituting Essien in the first half, believes Uganda will win the midfield contest and later the match.
