Coach - No Stage Fright in Cranes Qualifier Against Egypt

Facing Egypt was a daunting prospect for Ugandan football players and fans until last Thursday's 2018 World Cup qualifying game at Namboole, where an Emmanuel Okwi goal gave the team a 1-0 victory over the Pharaohs. Ahead of the return match, interim coach Moses Basena says: "The game in Kampala is over and out of the way. We now face another difficult situation."
