Uganda Cranes Regroup for Recovery Clash Against Ghana After Comoros Shock

The Cranes return to Stade Grande Marrakech hoping to bounce back from what could be considered their most significant defeat in three years, since January 2021 when they suffered a 5-2 loss to Morocco during the Total Africa Nations Championship (Chan) in Douala, Cameroon.

After suffering a 4-0 defeat to Comoros on Friday, Uganda Crane will tonight take on Ghana in the second and final international friendly of this window break.

 

The Cranes return to Stade Grande Marrakech hoping to bounce back from what could be considered their most significant defeat in three years, since January 2021 when they suffered a 5-2 loss to Morocco during the Total Africa Nations Championship (Chan) in Douala, Cameroon.

Their only other notable loss was against Uzbekistan in 2022, where despite a 4-2 defeat, the Cranes managed to find the net twice. However, as they aim to recover, they face a Ghana side equally determined to make amends after a 2-1 loss to Nigeria in their previous friendly, a result that stretched their winless run to six matches. 

 

This will be the ninth meeting between the Cranes and the Black Stars, with the East Africans recording just one victory - a 1-0 win in an African Cup of Nations qualifier in 2014 - alongside three defeats and four draws. 

“Matches provide platforms for improvement,” said FUFA Communications Director Ahmed Hussein while releasing the match banner.  

For Coach Paul Put, tonight's game against Ghana will be his fourth at the helm of the Cranes. Thus far, he has recorded two wins against Somalia (AFCON Qualifiers) and Kuwait (International friendly), and suffered defeats against Guinea and Ghana.  

“We are still trying to build the team and some of these players have not played together, I believe with time, the cohesion will be great and I have no doubt, they will improve,” Put said after losing to Comoros terribly.

The Ugandan FA strategically arranged at least two matches for their national team against highly ranked opponents to prepare for the FIFA 2026 World Cup qualifiers in June and the 2025 Afcon qualifiers in September.

 

It's worth noting that the Cranes will be without key figures such as Bobosi Byaruhanga and Allan Kyambadde, who withdrew from the squad due to injuries, while team Captain Khalid Aucho also missed the trip.
