Harambee Stars Uganda Cranes

Uganda Cranes interim boss Abdallah Mubiru is looking forward to Sunday’s international friendly match against Kenya and says his side doesn’t fear Harambee Stars heading into the game.

Kenya will host Mubiru’s charges at the Moi International Sports Center Kasarani as both teams intensify preparations for the forthcoming 2021 African Cup of Nations qualification matches that kick off in November.

Cranes landed in Kenya on Friday morning and speaking after touching down, Mubiru said they are looking forward to Sunday’s clash. He further stated that they respect coach Kimanzi’s side but are not afraid of them.


“Their (Harambee Stars) performance has been good in recent times. We are likewise, performing better. It is a high profile friendly match and I am looking forward to it. They (Kenya) have a good team. Of course, we respect them but we can’t fear,” he stated.
