Nigeria\'s head coach, Stephen Keshi has confirmed he will attend the Roadmap to Project Afcon 2019 symposium to take place in Kampala on January 23.

Keshi, one of Africa\'s best coaches who also won the 2013 Afcon trophy with the Super eagles before guiding them to qualification for the 2014 World Cup in Brazil will be one of the speakers at the symposium to take place at the Imperial Royale Hotel.

Patrick Ogwel, the FA\'s Head of Programmes told URN on Friday afternoon that Keshi confirmed that he will attend the event. He said they also expect speakers from England, Germany, Ghana, Kenya and South Africa.

The symposium was an idea mooted by the Uganda FA President, Moses Magogo and his executive after the Uganda Cranes\' failure to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon).

It will have its major objective geared towards qualification for the Afcon 2019 in Cameroon and discuss among other things some of the challenges why the national team has not qualified for Afcon since 1978. The Cranes last featured at the 1978 Afcon and lost to hosts Ghana in the final.

Ogwel said other topics that will be discussed include; challenges and opportunities for football in Uganda, good governance and football development, role of the media in football development, football structures and their implications to football, the fans and football development today, unique role of government and corporate world in football development and talent identification and role of the player in football development.
