The Federation of Uganda Football, (FUFA), has said Uganda will accord the Nigerian National team the Super Eagles the respect they deserve in spite of the ill treatment afflicted onto the Uganda Cranes during the March Africa Nations Cup qualifier.
Uganda lost 1-0 in the controversial first leg match played at the MKO Abiola Stadium in Nigeria's southwest city of Abeokuta.
The Cranes had earlier complained of poor reception in Nigeria after they were reportedly booked into a low standard Hotel and provided poor quality food.
FUFA Spokesperson, Rogers Mulindwa, says the Nigerian team has already been booked in at Fairway Hotel in Kampala.
The Super Eagles have finally confirmed that they will jet into the Country tomorrow afternoon ahead of Saturday's tie.
The Super Eagles team has been in camp in neighboring Kenya and had not made any official communication to their Ugandan counterparts until this morning.
The cranes team has been boosted by 15 professionals who are key for Saturday's match. Among those lined up by Coach Cranes Coach Laszlo Csaba, are South African based professionals Dennis Onyango, Timothy Batabaire and Cranes skipper David Obua, Serbian based Nestroy Kizito, Vincent Kayizzi from Rwanda, Egyptian based Geoffrey Massa and Eugene Sepuya who plays Armenia.
The FUFA Spokesperson says Uganda Cranes Argentine based midfielder Ibrahim Ssekagya will arrive in the Country tomorrow.
FUFA is confident about Uganda's performance at Saturdays match. Following the controversial first leg loss to Nigeria in which Uganda's goal was disallowed by the Senegales referee, FUFA petitioned the Confederation of African Football, CAF, referees committee to intervene.
Mulindwa says CAF is yet to make its decision but that FUFA is losing interest in the case since according to CAF rules the committee's decisions cannot substantially affect the results of the game.
