The Shilla Omuriwe coached side, at the tournament for the very first time, will face Egypt in Saturday’s quarters.

Egypt topped Group D after a 3-1 win over Morocco on Friday.

Group D saw Tanzania finish bottom after CAVB decided to remove the team having failed to comply with their financial obligations.

Uganda have their work cut out against Egypt who are the second most successful side in African Volleyball having won eight championships behind Tunisia’s 10.

If Uganda negotiates past Egypt, they will face winner between Tunisia and DR Congo in the semis.
