Cranes share 80million, needs a draw to qualify to 2012 AFCON

Cranes share 80million, needs a draw to qualify to 2012 AFCON

Uganda Cranes stars left Namboole Stadium a satisfied lot after a good day at work, having bagged all three points on Saturday.

They left their Sky Hotel even better, pocket wise. The victorious team had just shared Shs80m in winning bonus from Fufa. 21 players are reported to have received Shs2.5m each from Fufa president Lawrence Mulindwa.

The 21 players also include Hamza Muwonge and Henry Kalungi, who didnít make the bench, and skipper Ibrahim Sekagya, who was on the technical bench.

Fufa publicist Rogers Mulindwa did confirm the federation gave players and coaching staff the said winning bonus but could not disclose how much each got.

Uganda beat Guinea Bissau 2-0 to move to 10 points in Group J and edge closer to next yearís Nations Cup in Equatorial Guinea and Gabon. Godfrey Walusimbi and Geoffrey Massa scored the goals.

At Shs2.5m for each of the 21 players, that would amount to Shs52.5m. That leaves a balance of Shs27.5m, which may have been shared by officials.

What Cranes require
Itís now plain clear. A minimum of a draw in the Angolan capital of Luanda will send Cranes to their first Africa Nations Cup tournament since 1978. But should Cranes lose that match, Uganda could still wrap up qualification with maximum points against Kenya in the last match of the group in October.

Although Cranes have previously thrown away advantageous positions in Nations Cup qualification campaigns, this is arguably the most healthy position they have been at this stage.

Uganda firmly have destiny in their own hands. Angola and Kenyaís chances are hinging on a collapse by Cranes in the final two group matches.

All group winners qualify for the tournament to be hosted in Gabon and Equatorial Guinea, from all groups except Group K which will provide two teams.

Two best second-runners up from any of the other ten will join the top teams from those groups, the two from from Group K and th joint-hosts, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea.
