Uganda’s return to AFCON a boost as they eye ticket to Russia

Africa’s remaining 20 teams in the running for Russia 2018 will be in action this weekend.

This is the third and final round of qualifications for the FIFA World Cup and only five teams will go through. East Africa’s sole representative, Uganda, go up against Ghana.

The Cranes may be the underdogs going into the tie, but as Leon Ssenyange reports, their recent Africa Cup of Nations qualification — their first in 38 years — gives them a huge confidence boost.
