Team News and analysis
There is still excitement following Uganda Cranes 2-0 victory over Guinea and a 1-1  draw with Ghana in the ongoing qualification campaign of the 2015 African Cup of Nations. Football is a dynamic sport. Both Uganda Cranes and Uganda Cubs know that the competitions they were entered in are ‘missions possible’ putting in mind that the Senior team hasn’t lost a home game since 2005 while the juniors have won all heir four fixtures against Seychelles and Rwanda.
The Uganda U-17 ‘Cubs’ will enter the ray later today against Zambia knowing that they are just 180 minutes away from joining the continent’s top 8 teams in the Africa U-17 finals to be held next year in Niger.

The onus is on the youngsters to play their hearts all out and post good results in Lusaka as the passionate home crowd awaits them for the return leg in a fortnight.

The Uganda U-17 coach Matia Lule traveled with an 18 man contingent. No injury worries have been reported and the coach has kept the starting line up close to his chest.

However the Cubs will miss the services of team captain Andrew Okiring Isiagi who is in the US for studies. That role will now be taken up by his assistant Emmanuel Oringa.
