Uganda Cranes have reportedly completed their camp in Dubai and are expected back in the country on Tuesday.

The East African giants have been camping for the last two weeks in preparation for the Africa Cup of Nations.

Cranes will face South Sudan in the qualifying doubleheader tie on November 9th and 17th respectively.

“Uganda Cranes officially ended their nine days training camp in Dubai with a class session on Monday, October 12,” Fufa confirmed.

“The team is expected to return back home on Tuesday at 10 am with Joseph Ochaya and Jamal Salim who will later connect to their respective clubs.”

“While the rest of the foreign-based players will fly direct to their clubs from Dubai,” the statement further reads.

Uganda Cranes targets top position

Fufa Executive Committee Member Ronnie Kalema has revealed what the Uganda Cranes wants to achieve.

“Our vision is becoming the number one football nation in Africa on and off the pitch,” the former referee said.

“The world of football has changed dramatically over the last few decades.”

“Every country faces its own challenges in coping with these changes.”

“If we want to promote the game in Uganda, we must be ready to meet the needs of our strategy as Fufa.”

“This is the idea behind the Pro Agenda programme that offers such a vast array of different possibilities to enhance the capacity of the national team staff.”

“All internal football stakeholders of Fufa ought to know what’s going on at Fufa so as to have a sense of belonging and accountability to one another.”  

Meanwhile, the federation has confirmed the dates for the Fufa Big League and Regional League play-offs.

“The Fufa Big League play-offs will kick off on the 18th and end on the 21st of October 2020,” the federation confirmed.
