While addressing the players, Eng Magogo asked the players to appreciate the privileges and pride that comes along playing play for the national team .

Out of the millions of your age, you are only eighteen players here .It is such a great opportunity to don in the National teams jersey which is every footballers dream

He later cautioned the players to do away with the  pride when they are playing against Rwandese side.

“Though we have beaten Rwanda at all age categories , do not treat this game as a walk over because the Rwandese need it too .You Should work for the win by giving your best first ,work for your selves and then for the privilege ‘’ warned  the FUFA President .

He finally asked the players to work hard so that by the age of 20 they feature for big clubs in Uganda, abroad and the senior national team.


‘The national team is not about age where you are playing or coming from .It us about ability’ said Eng Magogo.
