President Museveni will this afternoon host the delegation of the Uganda Cranes team that is expected to fly back into the country after their African Cup of Nations expedition in Egypt.
A message from the Presidential Press Secretary, Linda Nabusayi, indicates that the event is to be held at 3pm at Entebbe State House.
“The President will this afternoon host the Uganda Cranes team at State House Entebbe at 3pm,”the message from Nabusayi read in part.
Despite going into the 2019 edition of the continent’s most prestigious football tournament as an underdog, Uganda finished on a high after being eliminated from the round of 16 by Senegal.
The achievement meant that for the first time in 41 years since 1978, Uganda not only played in the round of 16 but also won its first game at Afcon in the same period.
However, last Sunday, the local football governing body announced that they had agreed to part ways with the national team coach, Sebastien Desabre, only hours after the team’s exit from the Afcon tournament.
