Egypt and Uganda Under 23 sides lock horns once again at the Nelson Mandela National Stadium, Namboole in Kampala in the return leg of the CAF U-23 championship qualifier.

The visitors carry a 4 goal lead coming from the first leg massive victory earned at the El Arab Borg Stadium in Alexandria two weeks ago.

The Ugandan team has been conducting residential training drills since return and only entered camp at Sky Hotel in Ntinda on Thursday, the day the Young Pharaohs jetted into Uganda.

Uganda Kobs head coach, Milutin Sredojevic added three players to the side that traveled to Egypt.

Defenders, Andrew Okiring Isiagi and Ramathan Muwadda were joined by URA F.C striker, Villa Oromchan in training.

They played two build up games along the way; the first hosting SC Villa at Nakivubo stadium and winning 2-0 off Kezironi Kizito and Farouk Miya’s penalty.

The second build up was a  1 all draw with Express F.C at Wankulukuku stadium. Defender, Richard Kasagga cancelled Eric ‘Jjjaja Bucha’ Ssebuguzi’s opener.

Sudanese based goalkeeper, Salim Jamal joined the camp on the match eve and managed to train with the rest of his teammates.

It will be up to the decision of the technical committee to confirm the suitability of the El Merriekh goalkeeper ahead of the game.

Egypt needs to avoid defeat of more than four goals to advance to the Africa U-23 championship that will take place in Senegal later this year.
