‘Please Make Sure You Do Not Lose To Tanzania,’ President Museveni Tells Uganda Cranes


Uganda President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni has told Uganda Cranes to “make sure” they do not lose to Tanzania’s Taifa Stars in their final Afcon 2019 qualifying match next year.

Cranes are already through to the continental tournament set for Cameroon after edging out Cape Verde 1-0 in their penultimate Group L fixture in Kampala Saturday.

Taifa Stars on the other hand squandered a golden chance to qualify for the first time in 39-years following a shock 1-0 loss away to Lesotho in Maseru Sunday.

But the team can still break the jinx if they beat Uganda, who are yet to concede in the qualifiers, when they meet for the final showdown in Dar Es Salaam, something the Head of State does not want.

“Even if the Cranes have already qualified, I know that they still have a game to play against Tanzania. Please make sure you do not lose that game,” Museveni said after meeting the team Monday.

The president urged the players led by the skipper Denis Onyango to “eat well, exercise and avoid alcohol, smoking and womanizing.”

He was presented with a ball and two jerseys by the Uganda FA president Eng. Moses Magogo.
