Bobby eager to look at Sserunkuma
Gor Mahia player Daniel Sserunkuma will make his senior Cranes debut on Wednesday against Rwanda and Uganda coach Bobby Williamson is keen to look at what the striker has to offer.
The Cranes take on Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars in an international friendly in Kigali with an eye on Africa Nations Championships (Chan) and World Cup qualifiers.
But a good amount of attention will be on Sserunkuma, the Gor striker who caused a storm with coercions of not representing his country of birth in favour of Kenya last year, after continuously being ignored by Bobby despite his handsome returns in the Kenya Premier League (KPL).
The former Express and Victors striker, Sserunkuma, is the reigning KPL Player of the Year after ending the season runner-up top scorer with 17 goals for his club.
Among those that will be looking on with interest is Bobby. “It’s an opportunity to see Dan,” he said, “See how better he’s got. There is a lot of competition for him to be honest.
“We’ve got a lot of decent strikers and they are all much of a likeness. There is not a lot to separate them but we will see what he does on Wednesday.”
Sserunkuma faces competition from Azam’s Brian Umony and Yanga’sHamis ‘Diego’ Kiiza, who have all been summoned for the Wednesday encounter.
