Sudan calls off Cranes friendly, Bobby still confident of Zambia win

Cranes coach Bobby Williamson maintains Sudan pulling out of a scheduled friendly with Uganda this weekend is not a blow to the team’s preparations. Uganda’s northern neighbours became the latest nation to pull out of a friendly with the Cranes this year after those against Egypt and Malawi fell through due to varying reasons.

Unconfirmed reports indicate the Sudanese have instead opted for a friendly against a West African country. Cranes coordinator Crispus Muyinda confirmed the development.

"It is true the friendly is off," he said, "I have not got all the details yet though."

The news once again leaves Cranes to face Zambia in the Nations Cup qualifier next weekend without playing any international friendly.

Unconcerned
But Bobby believes this will not affect their planning. "I don’t think it will," he dismissively told Daily Monitor after yesterday’s training at the Namboole outside pitch, "We’ll just continue working with these guys and keep on improving.

"We’ll have another game against local opposition, probably the under 23s, before the Zambia game and see how it goes. We should have it probably Saturday or Sunday."

In their first build-up friendly against the Hippos, the under-20 national side, Cranes were 6-1 victors with Geoffrey Massa netting a hattrick.

But Bobby warns against reading against the scoreline saying these build-ups are mainly to boost the players’ fitness levels. "We were playing against young kids, and Zambia won’t be a roll over. But it was also an opportunity for kids to test themselves against the big boys.
