Uganda Cranes and KCCA FC defender Geoffrey Wasswa is focused on jostling for a starting berth on Uganda Cranes team.
The defender is among the crop of locally based players who were recently summoned on for national duty ahead of the 2022 FIFA Worldcup qualification games.
The local based players commenced with their training on Monday evening this week as they gear up for the Upcoming double header against neighbors Rwanda due on 7th and 10th October, 2021.
And Wasswa has preached caution against familiar foes the Amavubi Stars.
“Being the fact that Rwanda has players whom we know best, it’s not an advantage but it’s up to us to give our best. But With our preparations, I think we shall put up a good show on that day.So Its about we the players to put everything in action and follow what the coaches tell us,” he stated.
The new KCCA FC recruit was part of the of the Cranes Namutima team that beat Eastern side 1-0 last week. The good news is that he was named Captain of the day in the second half as the Cranes registered a slim victory in Mbale.
Whlist, Wasswa is ready to fight for a starting place in the team despite the stiff competition in his position.
“As you know in my position on the pitch there are a lot of good players but it will depend on the coach’s selection and I know if I give in my best in training, I will be good to go.”
In the second game of group E, Murshid Juuko was sent off in the second half of the game against Mali, where the Cranes registered another goalless draw in this world Cup Qualifying campaign.
