URA FC striker Robert Ssentongo has been expelled from the Uganda Cranes CHAN team that will face Sudan this Saturday at Nakivubo stadium.
Cranes head Coach Mlutin “Micho” Sredojevic confirmed the development on Monday evening at Mutesa II stadium, Wankulukuku after the Cranes lost 2-0 to Express FC in a Build-up game.
“I won’t tolerate someone who can put his personal business first ahead of the National team, He has abused the nation and every Ugandan and for that issue we have expelled him from the team,” said Micho.
Ssentongo who has been featuring for the Cranes side since 2003 was replaced with Express FC striker, Tonny Odur.
Odur scored the opening goal for Express FC a match the Red Eagles won 2-0 on Monday at Wankulukuku stadium.
The former KCCA FC goal machine joins four other summoned strikers on the team with team-mate Ceaser Okhuti, Frank Kalanda, Erisa Sekisambu and John Ssemazzi.
