Mubiru has given the detailed catalogue of preparations, the anticipated approach of these double headers, returning players to the team fold as he rallied the fans to support the team at all times.

The preparations started one and a half weeks ago as we have been engaged in private talks with each of the summoned players to help with the psychology. The players available those who play in the Startimes Uganda Premier League and some foreign based players will gather together.

“Winning at home remains very pertinent and important. Winning against Burkina Faso at home will give us the confidence. This will motivate the team heading into the away contest against Malawi.” Uganda Cranes coach Abdallah Mubiru.

Importance Of The Remaining

Players like Murushid Juuko, Yunus Ssentamu, Abdul Lumala, Mathias Kigonya, Daniel Isiagi and others are back in the National team set up after some period away.  They have been part of the National team 

There will be technical sessions with on field preparations on Saturday and Sunday before the whole group converges on Monday, 22nd March 2021 to embark on the technical approach of the game.

Both matches at home against Burkina Faso and away to Malawi are very important for the country, team, players and the technical team. All these two matches are equally important. The most crucial game will be against Malawi. Under all circumstances, the away game will be key. We need to get results from both games. I know, it will not be an easy game against Burkina Faso but we have the potential to get the positive results. The winning spirit of playing at home needs to be back. This was not visible in the last game played against South Sudan.
