Chan 2018, Monday, January 22

Uganda Vs Ivory Coast, 10:00pm

Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre has received a timely Shaban Muhammad boost following the striker’s return to training on Saturday.

Uganda face Ivory Coast on Monday in their final 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan) group match looking to at least record one victory.

Desabre will hope Shaban, who missed the 1-0 defeat to Namibia on Thursday through injury, plays a part in that quest.


Shaban’s timely recovery will boost the attacking options with Derrick Nsibambi and Nelson Senkatuka all available for selection.

Only Nsibambi, who has started all previous two matches, has scored a goal for Uganda; that coming in the 3-1 defeat to Namibia.
