Museveni said he was hopeful Uganda, “a footballing country” will “at one time, win this cup and retain it in Uganda”.

“With the commitment of our football administrators, and with increased government support,

we shall continue to improve on Uganda’s ranking, 

until we reach the World Cup Finals, hopefully in 2022.”

“This may take a few years considering that national teams from more developed countries train under very scientific and technologically advanced situations.”

Museveni described the World Cup Trophy visit as “a rare opportunity for Uganda as not all countries will have the opportunity to host it”.

“This visit is also symbolic in that it shows FIFA’s confidence in Uganda by recognising our international competitive football abilities.”

“until we reach the World Cup Finals, hopefully in 2022.”
