No Change as Basena Names Starting XI to Face Egypt in Alexandria

Uganda looks to make a bigger statement in their pursuit to attaining the unprecedented dream of playing at the FIFA World Cup.

With a few hours to the highly anticipated clash, interim head coach Moses Basena has named the team that will feature in the return leg against Egypt at the Borg El- Arabi stadium in Alexandria.

Basena has maintained the same team that earned a remarkable 1-0 victory against the Pharaohs last week at Mandela National stadium.

Captain Dennis Onyango who was named in the best XI f match day three maintains the spot between the posts.

He has kept five clean sheets in as many games and Uganda is the only nation yet to concede a goal in the ongoing FIFA World Cup qualifiers worldwide.

Nicholas Wadada starts at right back position while Geoffrey Walusimbi maintains his place at left black.

At the heart of defence, Jjuko Murushid and Isaac Isinde will take on the mantle of stopping Egyptian forwards.

Hassan Wasswa and Khalid Aucho remain as the two central midfielders with Farouk Miya playing ahead of them.

Derrick Nsibambi starts upfront as the target man with goalscorer Emmanuel Arnold Okwi starting on the right flank while Joseph Ochaya coming in on the left wing.

Uganda leads group E with seven points, one ahead of Egypt while Ghana and Congo Brazzaville have two and one point respectively.
