The Cranes of Uganda are praying for their winger Abdu Lumala to return to full fitness before the Group A match against Zimbabwe on Wednesday.

The Sweden-based forward picked up a knock towards the end of their 2-0 victory against DRC on Saturday.

Lumala had a light training on Sunday and Monday, and according to the team’s doctors, he should be fully recovered to play on Wednesday.

Meanwhile, the East Africans could seal a berth in the knockout round if they manage to beat the Warriors. They are currently on top of the group, thanks to a superior goal difference.
