Having grown up and played with Late Abel Dhaira in the youthful days in Jinja and at the Cranes team,striker Geofrey Massa has vowed on that Uganda Cranes will do anything to win today’s match in honor of the deceased.

Though they lost the first leg 1-0 in Ouagadougou on Saturday evening, the Cranes have now vowed to win today’s game for fallen goalkeeping star Abel Dhaira who recently lost a battle with abdominal cancer in Iceland.

At kick off, “both teams will have a one minute moment of silence that CAF has granted as they stand together with the nation to mourn one of Uganda’s finest goalkeepers” FUFA’s Fred Katende revealed.

Nigerian legendary soccer star Nwankwo Kanu is expected to be among the guests in today’s encounter.
