CECAFA U15: Uganda vs South Sudan; Three Changes Made

  • Tanzania Vs Rwanda – 2 pm
  • Uganda vs South Sudan – 4:30 pm

Uganda U15 head coach Jackson Magera has made three changes for the CECAFA group B game against South Sudan today. Daniel Mukisa Kirumira returns in goal after being rested against Tanzania.

The second change sees attacking midfielder Godfrey Ssekibengo also rested with left-winger Kasanya Leonard.

The changes mean Mutyaba drops to the attacking midfield role while Kyeyune and Ogwal in attack. Samuel Mutebi will operate on the left-wing.

If Uganda wins this game, they will only need a draw in the last game against Rwanda to top group B. Kenya yesterday cemented their top position in group A after beating hosts Eritrea 2-1. The winner of group A takes on the runners-up in group B and vice-versa in the semifinals set up due on Wednesday next week.
