Uganda Cranes Can Now Focus on Senegal, Not Bonuses, at AFCON

Cranes players finally stepped out of their hotel in Cairo after refusing to board the bus for training on Tuesday as they demanded the outstanding U.S.$10,000 bonuses that the Federation of Uganda Football Associations had promised each of them if they qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations 2019. They face the Lions of Teranga on July 5 in a knockout game.

Uganda is slated to face Senegal in their encounter on Friday.
