Cranes leave for Sudan minus influencial players

Just like it was before the Nile Basin Cup in Egypt, Uganda Cranes will travel without two of their influential players for the Africa Nations Championship (Chan) that starts this Friday in Khartoum, Sudan.

Cranes depart this evening minus defender Godfrey Walusimbi after he completed a two-year deal to join Angola giants Petro Atletico. Midfielder Dan Wagaluka has also reportedly sealed a move to Ethiopia’s St. George.

"Godfrey told me of his move; he is a great talent and I wish him well," said coach Bobby Williamson.

 "As for Dan, I don’t know but I am sure he won’t be with us in Khartoum," the Cranes coach added. 

The exodus is a continuation of last-ditch transfers that have depleted Cranes over the past months following the completion of the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup.

After the regional event, goalkeeper Robert Odongkara, defender Isaac Isinde, midfielder Sula Matovu and striker Henry Kisekka left for greener pastures.

Victors forward Yuda Mugalu is also doubtful, having sustained an ankle injury in the 1-all draw with Swaziland’s Mbabane Highlanders on Saturday in a CAF club competition.

Odur back, Kisalita in
The Scot has now called up Bunnamwaya defender Ayub Kisalita and also recalled striker Tony Odur as replacements for the tournament reserved only for  locally-based players plying their trade in their domestic leagues.

Odur had initially been dropped.

 "Ayub (Kisalita) can play any position in the back four," Bobby said of the Bunnamwaya player.
