Uganda Cranes Team News
Pretoria University striker Geoffrey Massa and KCC FC winger Brian Majwega are available for selection after missing the game against Ghana.
Uganda Cranes Probable XI:
Denis Onyango (GK), Denis Iguma, Godfrey Walusimbi, Andrew Mwesigwa (C), Isaac Isinde, Geoffrey ‘Baba’ Kizito, Aucho Khalid, Tonny Mawejje, William Luwagga Kizito, Geoffrey Massa and Brian Umony.
Both teams come into the game full of confidence due to their impressive performances over the weekend.
Uganda will be under more pressure to bag their first maximum points of the campaign while Guinea will be content with a point. This implies The Cranes will opt for attacking game against a cautious approach.
Uganda’s home record will go a long way in determining this game but going with performances of away sides in the opening round of the campaign, anything can happen.
Nevertheless, I still fancy The Cranes to edge this one.
Uganda 2-1 Guinea
