Cranes travel plans altered



The Uganda Cranes will now fly direct to Monrovia for their 2014 World Cup qualifying game against Liberia on Sunday after their travel plans were altered.

Fufa had earlier informed the public that they would camp in Accra, Ghana for three days before connecting to Monrovia.

“Due to lack of timely flight connections,” wrote Fufa publicist Rogers Mulindwa on Wednesday, “The arrangement has now been dropped.

“Fufa (also) wishes to clarify that the decision to cancel out the camp was not based on Ghana’s refusal to play an international friendly with us.

“Even with the first arrangement, we were not playing a friendly match in Accra as alleged in some media reports.”

The team will now leave Entebbe International Airport on Friday morning at 1:40am via Addis Ababa and Accra cities. Geoffrey Massa and Joseph Ochaya will link up with the rest of the delegation in Accra.

Uganda trail Senegal in second place with two points, with the Lions of Teranga topping Group J with four. Angola also have two points while Liberia are on one.
