Uganda Cranes captain Hassan Wasswa has warned Kenya ahead of Thursday encounter.
Wasswa, who turns out for Nijmeh in Lebanon, is expected to line-up against the hosts and lead his team after last season's stalemate at Namboole Stadium in Uganda. Wasswa says he respects his opponents, but not on the pitch.
"Kenya is our neigbour, and we are friends, but on the pitch it is a different thing, friendship does not exist. We definitely want to go and win, it will be a tough and competitive match but we are prepared," Wasswa told Goal.
Kenya has included most of her dependable players including captain Victor Wanyama. The Cranes will miss the services of Joseph Ochaya, with Sports Club Villa Jogoo winger Martin Kizza called up to replace him.
