Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson is optimistic that his team will perform well on Saturday when it faces Congo Brazzaville in the return leg of the 2013 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier at Namboole Stadium. He says that despite the fact that some players are still nursing injuries, the other players in the camp are working very hard to get the needed results on Saturday.
Bobby says that they are aware that the Saturday game is big and knows what it means to Ugandans, adding that are going to give their best and win the team to qualify for the next round. Congo Brazzaville beat Cranes 3-1 in the first leg played over two months ago, and the Cranes need two unanswered goals to qualify to the next round.
Meanwhile, as the rest of the team prepares to face Congo Brazzaville, injured midfielder Martin Kayongo Mutumba will return to Stockholm, Sweden for treatment following an injury he picked during the team’s 1-all draw against Senegal last weekend. Williamson belies that Mutumba will be a useful player for the Cranes when he recovers.
Mutumba who played his first game for the Cranes on Saturday turns out for AIK FC a Swedish premier League club as one of its star players. Skipper Andy Mwesigwa is also struggling to recover from his injuries and hopes to be ready for the weekend game.
