Hosts Nakasongola can expect a tough but fun-filled football match when they face the Uganda Cranes this weekend.
Cranes coach Micho Sredojevic named a strong squad for the charity game to be played on Saturday at St Lawrence Primary School in Migyera Nakasongola.
The match, where a Nakasongola Select side will get chance to face the national team stars, is a fundraising drive aimed at improving the maternity ward at the Nakasongola Health Centre IV.
The charity match is an initiative of 97.3 fm Simba Radio, Nakasongola District Football Association, Buganda region Football Association and Fufa.
Fufa Communications Manager Ahmed Hussein confirmed that the Inspector General of Police (IGP), General Kale Kayihura, has also joined the CSR activity “by asking his team to provide enough security for this match”
Micho, who returned midweek from his holiday, named his squad but the players will not undergo any training sessions ahead of the Saturday match.
The team will assemble at Fufa House on Saturday at 7am before leaving for Nakasongola.
