Cranes shun TFF coasters

By Clive Kyazze

Cranes rejected the transport services organized by the Tanzanian Football Federation (TFF) and hired their own.

It is like they had predicted,  TFF arranged two coasters for the Uganda team but national teams officer Paul Mutakabala who was the Ugandan advance party to Tanzania had hired an executive bus.

The bus was to ferry players and officials from the airport to the hotel and all the time they were to spend in Dar. 

CAF rules require the home team or country to provide internal transport and security for the home team.

But on so many occasions visiting teams especially on the African continent have always shunned the transport means available to them by the host teams.

And they have always instead hired their own means that meet their desired standards. 

No one can disprove the fact that Uganda was avoiding uncertainties as alleged by Congolese giant AS Vita that their host in the total CAF Champions League Simba SC had spread chemicals into their dressing rooms.

Cranes play Tanzania on Sunday evening in a tie the latter badly want to win and hope Cape Verde defeat Lesotho or the game ends in a stalemate for them to seal a ticket to the finals in Egypt.

While on the other hand, Cranes have already qualified as Group L winners on 13 points, four wins and a draw and are yet to concede a goal which will be the driving factor going into the game at the Banjamin Mpaka National Stadium.

Teams that have already qualified: Egypt, Madagascar, Senegal, Morocco, Cameroon, Mali, Burundi, Algeria, Nigeria, Kenya, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Angola, Mauritania, Tunisia, Guinea Bissau, Namibia, Uganda
