Uganda Cranes Intensify Training Ahead of AFCON 2019 Qualifiers

The Uganda Cranes team is intensively preparing for the AFCON 2019 group L qualifier against Cape Verde  at the Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.

According to the trainer Gerome, issues concerning physical and mental fitness for players have been polished ahead of the big duel and all the players are fit and physically prepared for the match.

There are barely 48 hours to the kick off of the match where Uganda Cranes need a point to seal the AFCON 2019 slot.

The team training session on Thursday will be conducted under closed doors following Wednesday morning session at Namboole.

Head coach Sebastien Desabre, the physical trainer Gerome D’Antonio, assistant coach Mathias Lule as well as the goalkeeping coach Fred Kajoba are closely monitoring the players.

 

Uganda Cranes only need a point from the remaining two matches against Cape Verde and Tanzania to seal a slot to the 2019 AFCON finals in Cameroon.

For the first time, the AFCON finals will be played in June with an increased number of countries (24) taking part.
