Umony hoping for quick recovery



Uganda Cranes’ prolific striker Brian Umony is nursing a heel injury sustained in their last group match against South Sudan.

Umony was however optimistic that he will be back for the quarterfinals on Tuesday despite sitting out on the Cranes training at the Lugogo stadium.

He has so far scored two goals in the competition and has been a true revelation with his speed and predatory instincts infront of goal.

"I injured my heel in our last game and feel alot of pain that is why the coach allowed me to sit out of training and this will probably be for three days as I seek treatment from a specialist.”

“I am very optimistic I will be ready for the quarterfinals and am looking forward to playing almost all the matches for my team and help them retain the title," Umony told supersport.com.

Cranes face Ethiopia in the quarterfinals slated for Tuesday at Mandela Stadium, Namboole.
