Uganda Cranes will not travel to Jordan for a training camp as earlier planned, Federation of Uganda football associations has announced.
The Cranes were to spend one week in Jordan where they would play two trial matches against Syria ahead of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Kenya early September.
However, without giving details for cancellation of the trip, Fufa Friday said efforts were being made to find an alternative friendly match within that period, before facing Ethiopia in the last build up on Sunday 29th August in the Ethiopian city of Bahir Dar.
After that, the team will fly out to Kenya, to take on the hosts in a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Qualifier in Nairobi on Thursday 2nd September 2021.
The team is currently undergoing intensive training and the federation said the domestic preparations will continue until a new schedule is communicated for the trip to Ethiopia.
Uganda plays Kenya away on 2nd September 2021 and will host Mali on 6th September 2021 at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
Rwanda is the other country in group E.
