The Uganda Cranes technical team will kick off early preparations for the 2017 AFCON Finals with four non residential training sessions before the end of November.
With the 2016 CACAFA Senior Challenge cup still in balance, FUFA has heeded to the plans submitted by the Uganda Cranes Head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.
‘FUFA will support the technical team towards preparations and planning for the 2017 AFCON Finals, Gabon. It is a challenge to the team not getting an opportunity to play in the CECAFA Senior challenge Cup which had been included in the Cranes preparations for the AFCON Finals. We have had to change the plans’ said FUFA Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein
‘Micho will release the detailed programme at the FUFA weekly press conference on Wednesday of the Uganda Cranes’ preparations for the 2017 AFCON Finals. The press conference will start at 10 am at FUFA House’ added Hussein
