International Friendly Matches:
- Saturday, 6th January 2018: Uganda Cranes Vs Guinea – Rabat
- Tuesday, 9th January 2018: Uganda Cranes Vs Congo Brazzaville – Rabat
Uganda Cranes will face Guinea instead of Cameroon in one of the two international engagements.
The new change has been confirmed by the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) Public Relations Officer, Ahmed Hussein.
”On Saturday, 6th January 2018, Uganda will face Guinea before taking on Congo on Tuesday, 9th January 2018,” Hussein confirmed.
According to the newly named Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre these two international friendly matches will be so useful in as far as the final preparations for the team are concerned.
The French coach who replaced Micho hinted on the essence of the friendly matches;
We need to gauge the physicality of the Cote D’Ivoire team when we face a West African country and the technicality of the Zambians as we test with Congo.
These games will be useful for the team to test out the players.
