As Uganda Cubs prepare for U17 African Nations Youth Championship qualifier against Zambia on 13th September, the youngsters arrived safely in Njeru then had light drills at the FUFA technical Centre.
Out of the 27 summoned players, 22 were available for the double session held at Nakivubo stadium (morning) and in Njeru (evening) where the team will stay till they depart for Zambia.
According to the team’s media officer Emma Nduga, some boys missed out because they are still with their respective schools while others had some minor knocks.
Team Captain Andrew Okiring Isiagi, Mukalazi Musa, Okakworo Chris and the other two goalkeepers Mwirusi Ali and Kasibante Edward all missed out yesterday’s training.‘Andrew Okiring is caught up with studies in the US but we expect him any time’ said team manager Nsubuga Herbert after the evening session.
