Cranes and Lorenzen off to Zimbabwe

The Uganda Cranes team flew to Zimbabwe Sunday night enroute to their Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against Botswana this weekend.


Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic named a team  of 19, including German based player Melvyn Lorenzen   to travel for their build up match against Zimbabwe tomorrow.  From Harare, Cranes will fly to Francistown to take on Botswana on Saturday.

‘We are happy with the process of documentation of Melvyn’s papers to secure him a National passport.  Mike Mukula, an ardent football fan has been of great help as well in a bid to help FUFA secure the player’s passport,” Micho told FUFA co ug.

“We are optimistic that the only missing paper to be issued by the German Government will be sent in time for the player to feature for Uganda Cranes against Botswana on 4th June, 2016.”
