Speaking to media today, the Kampala metropolitan police spokesperson Emilian Kayima said that this is an worldwide match with full watch of Federation Internationale de Football Association official thus security will be at its best.

Uganda interim coach Moses Basena will be eyeing another victory over Egypt when they meet again in the fourth round of the 2018 World Cup qualifiers.

Emmanuel Okwi scored the only goal of the game as Uganda stunned Egypt 1-0 in Namboole to transform their World Cup qualifying prospects and hand the Pharaohs a significant blow on the road to Russian Federation. The Referee of the match is Ali Lemghaifry (Mauritania).

A win over Congo will see Ghana closing in on group favorite Egypt who have managed 6 points from three matches.

Uganda Cranes prepares for the Pharaohs.

But Egypt goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary produced a finger-tipping save to deny Uganda's lively winger Emmanuel Okwi, whose cross was goal-bound in the 13th minute.

Seven-time African champions Egypt have been to two World Cups, the last of which was in 1990, while Ghana are seeking a fourth straight tournament appearance.

There is still four matches before Africa's five representatives at the 2018 Fifa World Cup in Russian Federation are known.

It is very interesting that, since 1962, the Ugandan national team and the Egyptian national team have played against each other 9 matches, while absolutely every game was a victory for the Egyptians.

For Uganda, beating Egypt is the only way to keep the World Cup dream alive even if Cranes have an unblemished road record in their last nine games.
