Uganda U20 team, the Hippos will be seeking for maximum points against Burundi U20 if they are to have any chances of making it to the Semifinals of the ongoing CECAFA U20 AFCON Qualifiers Tournament.
The Hippos who managed to salvage a point against South Sudan with ten-men, will match up with Burundi in their second group B encounter at the Sheikh Amri Abeid Memorial Stadium at 1pm.
Morley Byekwaso’s side comes into today’s encounter without the services of defender Musa Ramathan who was given his matching orders in the South Sudan so the KCCA FC coach will face selection problems on who to fill that void.
“We had a tricky difficult game against South Sudan and also got a red card which changed our game plan,” Morley Byekwaso said before adding,
“We expect to make a couple of changes especially at the front where we used a target man and the two players expected to help in were a little slower.”
