Uganda National U-17 team head coach, Matia Lule has 18 cards kept closer to his chest lest the Zambians spy and read his game plan.
Lule and the rest of the squad arrived in Lusaka, the Zambian capital on Wednesday evening and are expected to have a training session at the Nkoloma match day venue on Thursday.
Lule’s team could be predictable apart from the right back position – where Diego Katumba and Joel Jangeyambe are vying for the slot usually occupied by team skipper, Andrew Okiring, who did not make the trip.
“We shall defend and attack in equal measure”, Lule sounded prior to the team’s departure.
The rest of the team that started the game in Rwanda is expected to be maintained unless otherwise.
