Express FC head coach Wasswa Bbosa says he is not happy with the number of players summoned from his team to the National team.
Bbosa made those remarks after his side’s goalless draw with KCCA FC at Wankulukuku in their Uganda Cup first-leg quarter final match on Wednesday.
Speaking to the press, after the game, Bbosa noted that the two sides struggled to create chances but Express will go back and devise means so as to win the second leg.
“There were few chances on the day but we shall go back to the drawing board to see that we win the away fixture. Bbosa said.
“Good thing we have not conceded at home and all we need is an away goal to see us progress.”
Express has had a good season that has seen them sit top of the league with just four games to play and are also in the Uganda Cup quarter final.
The situation means that the Red Eagles are chasing a league and cup double this season.
Despite the magnificent run of form since the season started, only three of their players were summoned to the national team as Uganda starts preparations for the upcoming friendly against South Africa.
Defenders Murshid Jjuuko and Enock Walusimbi plus forward Eric Kambale were the only players called up, something that did not impress Bbosa.
“It’s (call-ups) good on our side but there should be more summoned players because they have performed well this season.
“If you wanted to call up players to the national team like back in the days, they used to summon like 7 to 8 players from KCCA.
“So it was possible to name like 7 to 8 players from Express to the national team and so am not happy about calling up only three players.”
Express will return to action next week as they take on KCCA in the second leg of their quarter final clash at Lugogo.
