FUFA complies with NCS, picks certificate of registration

FUFA has finally picked their certificate of registration from National Council of Sports (NCS) today.

The handover ceremony presided over by NCS vice chairman technical Mr. Zubair Galiwango this morning took place at the NCS headquarters at Plot 2-10 Coronation Avenue in Lugogo was witnessed by the assistant general secretary in charge of technical Mr. David Katende.

Mr. Galiwango handed over the certificate to FUFA first vice president Justus Mugisha flanked by executive committee in charge of international football organizing committee Dr. Barnard Ogwel and FUFA legal officer Denis Lukambi.

Asked whether the certificate confirms that two federations will manage football in Uganda Galiwango said that it is only FUFA under the administration of Mr. Moses Magogo they recognize.

“We have never issued another certificate to anybody other than this one. We received applications from different people and we looked at all. We found out that FUFA in Mengo outweighed the others,” Mr. Galiwango said.

He however advised FUFA to build a team and ensure everybody is allowed to build football in Uganda. Ministry of lands had earlier on given a group of ex-international players led by Mr. Dan Walusimbi a certificate of incorporation but the group has never finished the verification process to receive a certificate of recognition from NCS.

However, the group has on occasions forcefully stormed FUFA headquarters in Mengo in a bid to evict the sitting administration and claim legitimacy of football management.

Mr. Mugisha said that FUFA was happy with the certificate because it shows that NCS verified their administration and found it fit to manage football in Uganda. 

Uganda Cranes to get back from Gabon Thursday morning

The Uganda Cranes will return home immediately after their last Group D match at the 2017 AFCON finals against Mali on Wednesday night.

The game will be played at Stade De Oyem at 10:00pm Ugandan time and regardless of the result the Uganda Cranes is expected back home Thursday morning.

Meanwhile, Uganda Cranes first choice goalkeeper Denis Onyango will need to pass last minute fitness test if he must feature against Mali.

Onyango suffered a knock against Egypt. Uganda Cranes lost their first two matches against Ghana and Egypt 1-0.

Although morale of the Ugandans fans both in Gabon and back home here in Uganda has gone down because the team is already out of the competition the players have promised to salvage their image against Mali.

Indeed the players have their individual images to protect especially because the likes of assistant captain Waswa Hassan, Baba Kizito and Ochaya Joseph has had scouts hovering around the Cranes camp in Port Gentil in an effort to seize signatures. 

Uganda Cranes starts AFCON on faulty note.

Uganda Cranes have started their AFCON campaign with a 1-0 loss to Ghana Black Stars in group D of the finals Gabon.

The Cranes team fought to the last whistle but it was a mistake by defender Isaac Isinde in the first half that cost the team.

The penalty came following Isinde’s had a poor first touch and had to wrestle down Harrison Afful in the box.

“That one mistake (by Isinde) was very hard to explain. It needed man management to play the experienced players of Ghana. I am grateful to the players everyone has done their best. Our team has showed what they can do but I can believe we can show 200 per cent in the games ahead of us,” Uganda Cranes coach Micho Sredejovic.

In the last 15minutes Ghana withdrew to defend the game as Cranes kept attacking.

Uganda's next group game is against Egypt on Saturday.

Uganda Cranes starting lineup: Dennis Onyango, Dennis Iguma, Joseph Ochaya, Isaac Isinde (Geoffrey Sserunkuma), Hassan Wasswa Mawanda, Tonny Mawejje, Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito, Michael Azira (Moses Oloya), Faruku Miya, William Luwaga Kizito(Muhammed Shaban), Geoffrey Massa (Captain)
