Four  Cranes stars to miss Malawi friendly

Four Uganda Cranes senior players will not participate in the friendly against Malawi next Wednesday.

According to Cranes coach Bobby Williamson, skipper Andy Mwesigwa (Ordabasy), goalkeeper Denis Onyango (Sundowns), and strikers Brian Umony (Bình Dung) and Geoffrey Massa (Yenicami) are out.

"They have busy schedules with their clubs," confirmed Bobby yesterday. "So I will work with a few other individuals… Isinde (Isaac) is there, Owino (Joseph) is there… other players also have a chance to show what they can do."

Bobby would have preferred to have all his senior players for this friendly it being a prelude to the crucial first leg qualifier against Zambia due September 8."I have always said it. We can’t fully test ourselves in these friendlies because players are busy with their clubs but the media keep pushing for them.

We’ll have two or three players against Malawi that will also feature against Zambia. "But if the players that get a chance use it well, maybe they could get themselves a chance against Zambia." Mwesigwa’s team have games on August 10 and 19. "The only flight from Uganda to Turkey, where my route is, is on 16th yet we shall still be in Malawi," Mwesigwa said on his likely unavailability last Friday.

Umony’s Bình Dung also have league games on August 12 and 18 while Onyango’s Sundowns play on August 11 and 22. That said, August 15 is a Fifa calendar designated day for international friendlies.

Meanwhile, Uganda’s under-20 team, the Hippos, will face Morocco if they eliminate Ghana’s Black Satellites in the 2013 Africa Youth Championships qualifiers.

This follows confirmation that Gambia, who were trailing Morocco 4-1 from the first leg, have pulled out due to alleged financial problems. Their players even boycotted training due to non-payment of their allowances.
