Kiiza wants Cranes to improve ranking



Yanga striker Hamis’Diego’ Kiiza joined Uganda Cranes training at Namboole on Monday and immediately made clear his hunger for success.

The Cranes take on Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars on Wednesday in Kigali with an eye on the Africa Nations Championship (Chan) and 2014 World Cup qualifiers that resume next month.

While it is a friendly, Kiiza, who came off the bench to earn his Yanga side a point in the league at the weekend, insists they will be taking it very seriously especially that it will be considered in the next Fifa ranking.

“We are looking to victory so that the country improves on the Fifa rankings,” Kiiza told SuperSport.com after training, adding, “It will also help us as players to improve.”

Uganda are currently ranked 81st in the world by Fifa having moved three places up in the last release.

Kiiza, however, faces competition from fellow strikers Azam’s Brian Umony, Gor Mahia’s Daniel Sserunkuma and KCCA’s Tonny Odur, albeit, all are expected to have a run-out.

“Competition is healthy,” said Kiiza, “And without it you can’t have success.” Kiiza also expressed happiness at Umony joining him in Tanzania.

“I’m very happy he came and I’m looking forward to that game when we take on his team. It will be interesting.”
