8:27 EAT: UGANDA SUBSTITUTION: Brian Majwega paves way for Mike Sserumaga.

Micho now has an attack-minded side. It means Baba Kizito and Mawejje play deep in the middle. Then Sserumaga is just infront of them. And the striking trio of Massa, Sserunkuma and Ssentongo upfront.

8:24 EAT: GUINEA SUBSTITUTION: Mohammed Yattara on for Ibrahima Traore.

FACT: In all 2015 Afcon Qualifiers that Cranes have conceded first, they have failed to win. Madagascar (Away), Togo (Home and Away)

7:34 EAT: The Cranes are pacing up. Godfrey Walusimbi busts up front. Three corner-kicks in a row but they yield no fruit. Good response since that Traore goal!

Cranes are slowly stringing up play in the middle. They need a final pass on the business end of things.
