AFCON 2021 Qualifiers (Group B)
13th November 2019: Burkina Faso Vs Uganda Cranes – Ouagadougou
17th November 2019: Uganda Cranes Vs Malawi Flames – Mandela National Stadium, Namboole
Ronald Mukiibi Ddungu has pulled out from the Uganda Cranes team preparing for a doubleheader of the AFCON 2021 qualifiers against Burkina Faso (away) and Malawi at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole.
Mukiibi, a defender with Ostersunds FK in the Swedish top flight league suffered a knock during his club’s engagement.
He last featured for Ostesund during the 2-1 loss away to Hammarby at the Jamtkraft Arena on 27th October 2019, thus missing Ostersund’s latest away trip to Goteborg where the visitors suffered a 7-1 humiliation at the Gamla Ullevi sports complex last Saturday.
The game away against Burkina Faso being so soon (on Wednesday, 13th November 2019), it would be late for his full recovery.
The other defenders on the side are however available for selection.
Meanwhile, the team entered residential camp on Sunday evening and will depart the country for Burkina Faso on 11th November 2019 for Ouagadougou ahead of the Wednesday, 13th November clash.
The team is expected to have a single training session before flying out of the country.
Uganda Cranes will then host Malawi Flames on 17th November 2019 at the Mandela National Stadium.
