Uganda's Okhuti, Ndugwa out ahead of Tanzania encounter

KOBS strikers Ceaser Okhuti and Karim Ndugwa have been ruled out of this weekend’s first round All-Africa Games qualifying encounter with visiting Tanzania because of injuries.

The duo sustained injuries in last Sunday’s Olympic qualifier against Congo Brazzaville.

"They reported to camp but couldn’t pass the fitness test. We shall have them in the second leg," said assistant coach George Nsimbe.

Okhuti brings invaluable experience from the senior national side-the Cranes while Ndugwa is one of the budding stars. The Victors marksman scored Uganda’s winner against Congo at Nakivubo.

Replacements for the duo will be chosen from Ecobank Uganda Super league top scorer Hamis Kizza, Edris Kaye, Patrick Edema, Eric Ssebuguzi and Tanzania based Emma Okwi.

Okwi, who turns out for Tanzania giants Simba, was expected in the Kavumba camp last night together with Vietnam based Moses Oloya.

National coach Bobby Williamson and his Kobs counterparts George Ssimwogerere and Nsimbe are meanwhile working round the clock to map out a winning strategy.

Williamson, who has conducted all the team’s training sessions, yesterday had a keen interest in attacking formations with special emphasis on finishing.

"He has greatly boosted the team’s organization," explained Ssimwogerere citing specialized drills the Scotsman introduced.

The coaching trio’s task today will be trimming the squad from 28 players to the required 18 for the weekend encounter.

Williamson was visibly uncomfortable with the big numbers. Besides time consuming drills, the numbers pinch was also felt at meal time with some players missing out.

Some of the players had to do with snacks after the number  shot-over the 27 that were expected in the dinning hall.

Tanzania are expected today.

Somalia’s Muhammed Nuru will be the centre referee assisted by Salah Omaru Abkal and Hassan Muhammed Fido.

The winner between Uganda and Tanzania will face whoever proceeds between Eritrea and Kenya in a second round in June.
