Mawejje Back At IBV

physician check geneva;”>The former Police and KCCA player who has been part of the Cranes for the last eight years, surprised the Cranes technical bench last month when he opted out of the teams trip to Liberia because he was not fit.

Mawejje has vowed to be fully fit for the Cranes’ forthcoming 2014 World Cup qualifying games against Liberia and Angola in June.

“I did not have a club and was very unfit for the last few months. But I am returning to Iceland to work very hard so that am back to full fitness ahead of the games in June,” Mawejje stated. “But now that I am heading back to Iceland, I am going to work very hard to be fit.”

Mawejje said although the Cranes 2-0 loss to Liberia was a disappointment, he thinks qualifying for the next round is still a huge possibility


‘’All we need to do is beat Liberia and Angola, before picking a draw away to Senegal,” reasoned Mawejje.

Mawejje will be joined by former England, Manchester City and Portsmouth number one David James who is set to join the Icelandic club. The 42-year-old goalkeeper revealed the move on Tuesday after leaving the League One side Bournemouth by mutual consent last month.

James, who won the last of his 53 England caps in 2010, is to take up a player-coach role alongside his former Portsmouth team-mate and IBV manager, Hermann Hreidarsson.

“I am going to sign for IBV in Iceland today. My role is as player/coach, alongside Herman. We are both very excited about the journey ahead,” James wrote on Twitter.

Mawejje born in Masaka 26 years ago is an aggressive, athletic and agile midfielder capped 36 times with two goals for Uganda.
