Monday July 8, 2019


The Uganda Cranes have returned to the country after being knocked out of the round of 16 by Senegal in a game that ended 1 to nil.

The Cranes who arrived a few minutes to 4:00 am will later on be hosted by President Kaguta Museveni for a luncheon at State House.

While in Egypt, the Uganda Cranes proceeded to the round of 16 after beating DR Congo 2-0, drawing 1-1 with Zimbabwe and suffering a 2-0 loss to Egypt.

The Cranes had last moved out of the group stages in 1978.

Their exit has also been followed by the exit of their coach Sebastien Desabre who has since been linked to Egyptian side Al Ahly and Tunisian top side, Etoile Sportive du Sahel.

This after he (Desabre) reached a mutual understanding with FUFA to terminate his contract for reasons yet to be known.
