Uganda Cranes striker Fahad Aziz Bayo has been ruled out of Uganda Cranes AFCON qualification match against Malawi next week on Monday. It is said that striker is nursing an injury and he missed out on Friday’s training session.

Fahad  who plays his professional football with Israel’s FC Ashdod came on as a second half substitute in the goalless draw between Uganda and Burkina Faso at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende replacing Patrick Kaddu who had pulled a muscle.

It is believed the striker could have had a slight injury before joining camp and aggravated it in warm up before coming on against Burkina Faso.

FUFA Communications Director, Ahmed Hussein revealed that the Federation had planned for such circumstances thus calling a big squad.

“With games being played in a short period and considering these are COVID-19 times, FUFA thought it wise to have a squad big enough to cater for occurrences like injuries. We believe the coach still has options to pick from.” He said.

It should be noted that his teammate at FC Ashdod, Timothy Awany who is in camp is also ruled out of the game.

Timothy who is also injured did not make even the bench on Wednesday and wasn’t part of the training session on Friday.

Kaddu who was stretchered off in the game against Burkina Faso is also a doubt for the game. Him and winger Abdu Lumala were excused from team training and only did individual drills on the sidelines while right back Elvis Bwomono has since returned to his club (South End) in England.
