Uganda to camp in Niamey ahead of Ghana clash

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has revealed that the national team will camp in Niamey, Niger before facing Ghana in a 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier.
Ghana will host the Cranes on September 5 in Kumasi in one of the Group E matches of the 2015 Afcon qualifiers. Decolas Kiiza, the FUFA Head of Finance said that they have decided the team should camp in Niamey before flying out to Kumasi on September 3.
Kiiza said they picked on the Niamey option because the second alternative of camping in Bamako had some issues.
The Cranes, who last qualified for the 1978 Afcon, ejected Madagascar and Mauritania to qualify for the Group stage.
They are pooled together with Togo, Guinea and the Black Stars of Ghana who are fresh from participating in the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil.
Head Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic who guided Uganda’s local based players to qualification for the 2014 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) is expected to announce the squad on Wednesday during a press conference at the FUFA headquarters in Mengo.
Uganda, Sudan and Ethiopia are the only Cecafa nations that will battle in the Group stages of the Afcon qualifiers after Rwanda were disqualified on Sunday for using a player who holds two different passports for two countries.
