Massa celebrating with teamates

Cyprus based Ugandan professional player, Geoffrey Massa has been ruled out of next Saturday’s international friendly match against Egypt. The player will however be in Congo for the Afcon qualification match.

The Cranes Head Coach, Bobby Williamson told a technical meeting that sat at Mandela National stadium this Saturday evening that the striker will have a club match on the same date Uganda engages Egypt. In a related development, the absence of the Ethiopian based trio of Isaac Isinde, Mike Sserumaga and Sula Matovu has also been confirmed. St. George, a club they play for that narrowly missed the league title last season will also be busy on the pitch next weekend.  The Federation has however learnt of the planned move by St. George to block the same players for the Congo match on February 29.

The federation has petitioned the continental football body, CAF for an intervention. The Cranes team is expected to leave for Egypt next Tuesday. The friendly match will not be played from the country’s main city of Cairo but from Gouna stadium, Hurghada within the Red Sea Resort City.

The travelling players will include Dhaira Abel, Ali Kimera, Habib Kavuma, Dan Wagaluka, Mike Mutyaba, Simeon Masaba, Denis Guma, Bengo Steven, Kalungi Henry, Tonny Mawejje, Geoffrey Sserunkuuma and Umony Brian.  Others are Captain Andy Mwesigwa, Kayongo Mutumba Martin, Oloya Moses, Ochan Patrick, Mude Musa, Walusimbi Godfrey, Wasswa Hassan and Okwi Emmanuel. The team will connect direct from Cairo to Brazzaville on Sunday morning.
