Uganda Cranes skipper Andy Mwesigwa endured a five-hour long journey by road from Cairo to El Gouna today ahead of a vital international friendly against the Pharaohs on Wednesday.

The skipper arrived at the Sheraton Miramar Resort as the Uganda Cranes team boarded the bus to go for training. Like a true captain, Mwesigwa only jumped onto the bus for training with the rest of the team.

Head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic described his captain as incredible and a true leader. Mwesigwa who arrived in Cairo at 5am reportedly misplaced his ticket and only got a taxi cab to drive him to El Gouna at a cost of 180 dollars.

The defender, who plays for FC Ordabasy in Kazakhstan, admitted he could not remember the name of the city that was hosting the match and had not printed some details of the journey.

The professional players who have now arrived for the match include Geoffrey Massa, Tonny Mawejje, Mwesigwa, Dennis Onyango, Robert Odonkara, Isaac Isinde, Robert Ssentongo and AIK’s Martin Mutumba, who played against English Premier League champions Manchester United last week.

Uganda Cranes is using the build-up ahead of a crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Senegal on September 7 in Morocco, while the hosts who face Guinea on September 20 have already qualified for the next phase of the qualifiers.
