“As the captain, am here to confirm that all players are in good spirit and ready to take on Lesotho tomorrow. In this no player is underestimating Lesotho because in these modern days, there is no small team, all teams fight for pride”, Onyango stated while addressing the media.

‘Mr Safe Hands’ Onyango further promised Ugandans that with their support, Cranes will qualify by the end of Tuesday when they play away in Maseru.
