Uganda’s national team, the Cranes who have already qualified for the quarter finals of the 2012 CECAFA Tusker Cup will today play eliminated South Sudan at Namboole Stadium.
Although there has been rumor that the venue of games had been moved, Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) has confirmed that today’s games will be played at Namboole stadium. Entrance for the ladies is free.
The cranes who lead group A with six points will be seeking to maintain their 100% record when they face minnows South Sudan.
Coach Bobby Williamson is not taking the game lightly despite the cranes qualification saying the South Sudanese will not be walked over.
“South Sudan are not a bad team,” said the Scot, “It is a new team and are very comfortable on the ball and can pass the ball well. They have only been unfortunate with things like defensive lapses.” Bobby said.
However, the Scottish Tactician is expected to rest some players and give the untested an opportunity to showcase their talent.
The South Sudanese (bright stars) who are playing in the tournament for the first time after they became a new nation mid last year will hope they can salvage something from the tournament.
Probable Cranes X1: Ali Kimera (GK), Nicholas Wadada, Henry Kalungi, Isaac Isinde, Godfrey Walusimbi, Manco Kawesa, Geoffrey Kizito Baba, Moses Oloya, Robert Ssentongo, Hamis Kiiza and Brian Majwega.
