No Independence holiday for Cranes

Brian Omony in action against Senegal. The Cranes team will have no break to celebrate Independence but instead continue with their training in preparation for their match against Zambia on Saturday.

As the rest of the Ugandans travel to Kololo air strip for the independence jubilee celebrations this Tuesday morning, the Uganda Cranes will be undergoing a training session in preparation for their game against Zambia on Saturday.

The team will miss the country’s historical event as they look forward to giving Ugandans a better Independence gift if they dump the continental champions from qualifying for the 2013 Afcon finals to be held in South Africa early next year.

Today’s training session will be conducted from Nakivubo stadium. Training starts at 9:29am. The change is intended to avoid the likely injuries from the usual training ground outside Namboole main stadium currently under a sole state.

The team will return to Namboole main ground on Wednesday morning according to the communication from the stadium management.

Meanwhile Patrick Ochan who features for TP Mazembe joined camp Monday evening and will be part of the squad training today. Emmanuel Okwi was due to arrive in the country last night while Henry Kalungi comes this Tuesday.
