Dhaira ruled out of Cecafa



Uganda’s title defence of the Cecafa Tusker Cup has been dealt a huge blow after first choice goalkeeper Abel Dhaira was forced out of the tournament with injury.

The IBV (Iceland) 25-year-old goalkeeper suffered fractures around his left eye after heavy collision with Kenyan striker Rama Salim in the Cranes’ 1-0 victory over the Harambee Stars on Saturday.

“He (now) won’t participate in the (remaining matches of) the tournament,” Cranes coach Bobby Williamson told SuperSport.com after the team’s training at KCCA’s Lugogo Ground on Monday morning.

The Scot added: “He (Dhaira) is comfortable although disappointed. (The good news is) He does not need an operation.”

Hamza Muwonge, who replaced Dhaira on Saturday, will continue between the sticks when Uganda face Ethiopia in Group A’s second round of games on Tuesday.

Both sides have three points from the first games and will look to getting maximum marks to ensure early progression to the next stage.
