Walusimbi, who plays professional football in Gor Mahia F.C in Kenya did not play any part in the last Cranes’ game against Ghana in Kampala because of accumulated yellow cards.

Meanwhile, Geofrey ‘Baba’ Kizito, who came off the bench against Ghana starts in a five man mid field of Tonny Mawejje, Farouk Miya, Brian Majwega, Kizito Luwagga and Baba himself.

University of Pretoria striker, Geofrey Massa starts as a alone striker.

Some Member of Parliament including Elijah Okupa, Martin Zilaba Muzaale, Kaps Hassan Fungaroo and Godfrey Kiwanda have all spoken to KFM predicting a win for the national team, calling for prayers from all Ugandans.

The match is set to kick off at 7 pm.
