The Uganda National Men’s Beach Soccer team, the Sand Cranes will be seeking to earn a perfect start at the 2021 Beach Soccer Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Senegal, on Sunday May 23.

The Sand Cranes face hosts Senegal in their opening game of this year’s tournament.

This will be Uganda’s maiden appearance at the tournament that will be played until 29th of May in Saly City, Senegal.

Group A, in which Uganda is drawn, has now got three teams after the other (Democratic Republic of Congo) withdrew from the final tournament, hence calling for rescheduling of the fixture.

Ahead of their first game on Sunday, Salim Muwonge the head coach for Sand Cranes, says his side is ready for the first game and hoping for a better start.

“The boys are in good shape, we trained two days in Senegal and they are coping up with the weather conditions. Muwonge said.

“We are ready for our opening game against Senegal and hoping for good results.

“We have combination play and we know the partnership with the boys. This is a game of defenders and forwards so they can combine and play the game.”

After their first game, the Sand Cranes will finish up their group fixtures against Tanzania on Monday, May 24.

To reach the final tournament, Uganda went through without kicking a ball after Ghana, their hurdle in the final qualifying bend, withdrew.
