Kyeyune Starts As Byekwaso Names XI To Face Saudi Arabia

Saidi Kyeyune will start in the middle of the park as Uganda’s Cecafa bound U23 team to face their Saudi Arabia counterparts in a friendly on Friday is revealed.

Kyeyune, unattached, has been out of action since leaving Sudanese side Al-Merrikh in April after a brief spell.

The former URA FC midfielder will look to reignite his form that saw him score two goals including a beauty against Togo in Chan 2020.

He is among the three over-age players in the squad, and the trio have walked direct into the starting lineup.

The other two are goalkeeper Charles Lukwago and URA striker Steven Mukwala.

The team, that will be captained by Enock Walusimbi, is composed of mostly Uganda Hippos side that reached the AFCON U20 Championship in Mauritania.

The match at Prince Faisal bin Fahd Stadium in Riyadh, is the first of the two friendlies lined up to fine tune the two sides for respective tournaments.

The two sides will play their second friendly on July 5.

Uganda will use the match to prepare for the upcoming CECAFA U23 Championship while Saudi Arabia will gauge themselves for the Olympics tournament as they are one of the four sides to represent the Asian Continent in Tokyo.

The Starting XI Charles Lukwago, Enock Walusimbi, Aziz Kayondo, Musa Ramathan, Peter Magambo, Bobosi Byaruhanga, Steven Sserwadda, Saidi Kyeyune, Richard Basangwa, Isma Mugulusi, Steven Mukwala
