The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) wishes to clarify on the matter of Uganda Cranes striker Geoffrey Massa.
It is indeed true that FUFA received communication from Massa that he could only be released by his club on Wednesday 3rd September, 2014.
Definitely connection to Niamey, Niger for Massa where some foreign based players inclusive of Denis Onyango (South Africa), Luwagga Kizito (Portugal), Tony Mawejje (Iceland), Andy Mwesigwa (Kazakhstan) have regrouped for a four day camp was not feasible from the technical point of view for the game against Ghana.
It was therefore agreed that Massa is reserved for the game against Guinea on 10th September, 2014, a ticket has already been sent to him and is expected in camp tomorrow (Wednesday 3rd September, 2014) to join the rest of the Uganda Cranes players at Sky Hotel in Nalya.
Arrangements are also being made for Alex Kakuba to fly in from Portugal to join the players at Sky Hotel as the medical team monitors the progress of Brian Majwega’s injury.
The players already camp at Sky Hotel: Benjamin Ochan, Allan Kyambadde, Bwete Brian, Martin Kiiza and Brian Majwega
