AFC Leopards midfielder Musa Mudde has set his eyes on impressing the Uganda Cranes technical bench to earn a recall.
The combative midfielder who played a key role and netted two goals for the Kenyan side at the just concluded Cecafa Nile Basin Cup in Sudan told AfricanFootball that he is back to his best.
Mudde played all the games for AFC Leopards in the Cecafa Nile Basin Cup before losing to Uganda’s SC Victoria University 2-1 in the final. They had won all their five games before the final.
“I am keeping my fingers crossed so that I can be recalled to the team. All am doing is working very hard,” said Mudde.
The midfielder who has been out of the national team for over a year because of injuries said the best things is always to play for the national team. Mudde picked a career threatening injury while at Tanzania’s Simba FC in 2013 before being released. He signed a two year contract with AFC Leopards in February this year.
Mudde is hoping Cranes Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic can give him a chance next when the team faces Equatorial Guinea the final phase of the preliminary of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon). The Cranes ejected Madagascar in the second round, while Equatorial Guinea saw off Mauritania.
The winner between Uganda Cranes and Equatorial Guinea will qualify for the group stages where they join Ghana, Guinea and Togo in Pool E.
