Cranes nearly missed their flight in the early hours of Sunday when police arrested the national team’s bus driver for drink-driving.

The national team bus driver was arrested on Entebbe road just before midnight Saturday on his way to pick the Cranes at Namboole Stadium. He failed police’s breathlyzer test.

The driver, one Kasenge, who claimed to have taken ‘only one bottle to keep him awake,’ was found to have exceeded the alcohol limit allowed.

FUFA vice- president Asuman Lubowa (extreme left) jumped onto the wheel, raced to Namboole, where ‘experienced driver’ Hakim Magumba then mesmerised his coach Laszlo Csaba by driving the team to Entebbe.

The bus was left at the airport parking bay, where FUFA officials picked it in the morning.

The contingent of 25 comprising 18 Cranes players and seven officials arrived in Tripoli Sundaywithout Cairo- based professional Geoffrey Maasa.

Augustine Nsumba replaced Maasa but Csaba advised FUFA to rethink the involvement of Ugandan professionals in the 2008 Ghana Nations Cup qualification campaign.
