The legends arriving at Entebbe airport Thursday


Three more former Barcelona F.C legends, Gaizka Mendieta, Francesco Coco and Gianuluca Zambrotta have arrived in Uganda ahead of the match with Cranes Allstars set for this Saturday at Namboole.

The first star to arrive in the country was former Dutch midfielder Edgar Davids who jetted in on Tuesday evening followed by the other stars later in the night.

All the Stars are expected on Thursday as they plan to have a group training session on the match eve at Namboole on Friday.

The earlier stars who arrived were taken around the country for touring at Bwindi Impenetrable national park, fond of the eye catching mountain gorillas, great green vegetation and water bodies.

Meanwhile, the Uganda team will continue with training at Nelson Mandela training ground on Thursday evening under the keen eyes of coaches Mike Mutebi, Sam Ssimbwa and Paul ‘Gogolimbo’ Ssali (goalkeeping coach).
