The much anticipated Mutumba Martin has left and gone back to Sweden ahead of Uganda Cranes game against Congo set to take place on Saturday.
Mutumba was injured during the Uganda Vs Senegal game on Saturday 9th which saw Uganda and Senegal draw with 1-1 win.
With Mutumba gone, Uganda Cranes has to find a replacement soon after dismissing 7 players ahead of the match against Senegal last week.
The remaining players are still training tirelessly hoping to beat the Congo Brazaville in Saturday’s match which will be held at Mandela National Stadium.
