Despite making his debut in the 2-0 loss against Zimbabwe, Werder Bremen Uganda Cranes forward Melvyn Lorenzen Agaba has opted out of the tie against Botswana.
The striker, born in England to a Ugandan father and Germany father revealed he still needs time to reflect on his future before committing to Uganda.
“I am honoured to have been received and accepted by the players, coaches, officials and the love extended by the fans and the opportunity to play for my nation of descent,” he said as quoted by the FUFA website.
“I am aware of the team’s objectives but in order to help me take such a big decision, I definitely need more time to reflect and take the big decision. So far I am extremely impressed” Melvyn added.
Uganda Cranes Coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic was impressed with the striker’s debut and admits the side will miss him.
“We shall definitely miss the extra impetus he would bring to the team as was seen in the friendly match against Zimbabwe but for now we shall concentrate on the able players we have in the team to accomplish our mission.”
