Diaspora: a preview of how Ugandans will turn up with their teams over the weekend


As Uganda still battles the COVID crisis as most European league football continues and more are bound to return, a short International break away from club football had to be forced and allow the UEFA Nations League to be played.

While many leagues won’t be active this weekend, a few leagues remain active, and here we again sketching for Ugandans playing abroad.

The Touchline Sports’ Edwin Waiswa takes you through how our players abroad will be faring in their respective leagues.

In South Africa, Denis Onyango is still nursing an injury and will be out as his Mamelodi Sundowns battles Black Leopards in their last league game of the PSL 2019/20 season. Mamelodi sits second on the log with 56 points, level with first-placed Kaizer Chiefs.

Any win for Mamelodi at Dobsonville Stadium and Chiefs fail to pick up maximum against Baroka Swallows will hand the Brazilians their 13th league title.
