Uganda National football team, The Cranes safely landed at Entebbe International Airport on Friday afternoon from Togo where they won 0-1 against hosts Togo in the FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifiers match, Thursday afternoon.


The team touched Entebbe airport at 2:33pm aboard Chartered Flight with all officials and players in good health.

Speaking from Ibis Hotel earlier before setting off from Lome, the leader of delegation Hamid Juma said the players’ performance was ‘so impressive’.


He commended the Head Coach Milutin Micho Sredejovic for giving most of the Ugandan players a chance to test their various chances.

The Serbian tactician utilized all the three substitutions out of the 18 players that traveled with the team.

He (Micho) has given at least each player chance to establish. And I have a feeling this will yield more fruits.

The match ended 0-1 with Farouk Miya netting the solitary goal for Uganda in the forth minute.

Meanwhile, the team had slight recovery training at Vienna College Namugongo on Friday evening.



Their counterparts Togo arrived later on Friday evening aboard Ethiopian Airways and will be accommodated at Africana Hotel.

Uganda carries into second leg a 1-0 goal advantage.

The Winner between both sides will advance to the group stage ranking.
