The Uganda Cranes conducted a double session in the morning and evening on day two of nonresidential training at Mandela national Stadium, Namboole ahead of the double header 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers against Egypt.
Assistant captain Hassan Wasswa Mawanda told journalists after the training that they are set to conquer Egypt and ready to give in all their energies for the encounter.
‘We are more than ready for the game and only waiting for the day at Namboole. We have unfinished business after the 1-0 slender loss at AFCON in Gabon. We have to pay back. We were just unlucky that day but with the trust in our Lord, luck is on our side and we have also worked hard. We believe in our fans when we play at Namboole. We love them. They know what to do and disorganise the opponents’ said Wasswa
Wasswa added that after testing AFCON recently in Gabon, it is World cup next in line.
‘We have the trust in ourselves and believe me, we shall do it come 31st August against Egypt’ added Wasswa.
