READY: The Uganda Cranes after their last training session

The Uganda Cranes team resumed training after they returned from South Sudan from the 1st leg of the CHAN 2018 qualifier that ended 0-0.

Team captain and KCCA striker Geoffrey Sserunkuuma missed a penalty kick in the 51st minute against South Sudan in the goalless stalemate in Juba.

The team returns to training at KCCA home ground in preparation for the return leg on Saturday in a game they must win to keep their hopes of playing in the CHAN tournament next year alive.

The Cranes are supposed to win the return leg at home next Saturday while South Sudan need any scoring draw to go through.

If Uganda Cranes go through, they will face either Tanzania or Rwanda who drew 1-1 in the first leg at Mwanza stadium, to confirm a place in the CHAN tournament.

The CHAN competition is for only home-based players and it will be hosted by Kenya next year.
