After 13-hours of traveling from Kampala, to Entebbe International Airport through Doha, Qatar the Cranes finally arrived in Casablanca, Morocco ahead of their crucial 2015 Afcon qualifier against Guinea on Wednesday.


The determined Cranes team were delayed at the Casablanca International Airport for another one hour before they headed straight to the Hotel Casablanca Le Lido Thalasso & Spa where they had a quick lunch.


Edgar Watson, FUFA’s Chief Executive Officer who traveled as an advance party was at the Airport to receive the team.

‘We are here for a serious mission and we must achieve it’ midfielder Tony Mawejje told on arrival.


Defender Savio Kabugo who scored the lone goal last weekend against Ghana said he hopes he can get on the score sheet again.

Uganda Cranes who last qualified for Afcon in 1978 are second in Group E and need a win or draw to qualify for the finals to take place in Equatorial Guinea.

The Black Stars of Ghana lead the Group on eight points, while Uganda has a point less.

The team arrived at 8am (Morocco Time) 11 am (EAST).

Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic will take his boys through drills later today at 3.30pm (Morocco time, 6.30pm EAST) at Raja Casablanca sports complex.

Edgar Watson played a key role in laying the ground for the team’s arrival in Morocco.
