Cranes beef up Cecafa squad



Cranes coach Bobby Williamson has called up three new players to join Uganda’s preparations for the Tusker Cecafa Cup that kicks off next Saturday in Kampala.

Midfielders Hassan Wasswa (free agent) and Saidi Kyeyune (URA), plus defender Henry Kalungi (Carolina - USA) are the new arrivals.

Wasswa and Kalungi had initially been rested for this tournament as Bobby promised to use it more for identifying fresh talent. Kyeyune is getting his first call-up to the senior national team.

In another development, defenders Joseph Owino (Azam - Tz) and Edward Ssali (Vipers) were dropped on fitness grounds.

Exciting forward Crizestom Ntambi (NaviBank - Vietnam), whom neutrals thought this would be his tournament to make a mark, has also opted out of the squad.

“He’s asked me for permission that he needs to go back to Vietnam to sort out club transfer issues,” explained Bobby Williamson, the Cranes coach,” adding, “So he will not be available for tournament.”

Ali Moses Feni, the URA midfielder, is also out after he reportedly left for Vietnam for professional trials.

Uganda open their Cecafa title defence against rivals Kenya at Namboole. The Cranes have won it a record 12 times.
