Uganda Cranes coach Moses Basena briefed his players before training kicked off on Sunday evening about the importance of the 2018 FIFA World Cup Qualifier Russia against Egypt on Tuesday in Alexandria.

‘We picked up a good result against Egypt. We need to build on that on Tuesday. It is this group that will do the job and i believe you know the reasons why we are here’ said Basena who was flanked by Ibra Sekagya and goalkeeping coach Fred Kajoba.

The players trained for one and half hours at the football pitch owned by the Radisson Blue Hotel Management.

On Monday evening the players will train from the Borg El Arab stadium-the venue for Tuesday’s match.

FUFA President Eng. Moses Magogo, Leader of Delegation Hamid Juma and Commissioner for Physical Education and Sports Omara Lamex Apitta all watched the training session.
