Shaban out of Namibia clash

Chan 2018

January 18

Uganda Vs Namibia

Uganda will be without striker Shaban Muhammad for Thursday’s crucial African Nations Championship (Chan) match against Namibia.

Shaban picked up an injury in Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to Zambia when he came on as a substitute.

“Shaban is injured and I think it is not possible for him to play, but we have twenty-two other players,” said Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre.

The Frenchman is also hoping for a clinical display after sitters – particularly one that fell to Allan Kyambadde – were squandered against Zambia.

“We have no choice,” he said, adding, “We’ll play for a win. I hope we convert the chances in our box against Namibia because it was a problem in our first match.”
