Cranes coach Bobby Williamson cannot hide his impression of Ugandan Bryan Massa, who turns out for Vasalund IF in the Swedish Division One league.
The Scot, who returns to Kampala from assessing Martin Mutumba and Massa, is impressed with both players and has given FUFA the go-ahead to secure a Ugandan passport for Massa.
Williamson returns just in time to summon the squad for the 2014 World Cup qualifier against Senegal next month and the return leg of 2013 Nations Cup qualifier against Congo. Uganda lost the first leg 3-1 away in Brazaville in February.
Williamson went to Sweden last week to watch the two players and report to the football federation his assessment as far as the national team is concerned. FUFA publicist Roger Mulindwa said at the weekly press conference that they would lodge an application Massaís passport.
Coach (Williamson) has sent me an e-mail and he is very impressed with Massa. In fact he has told me to go ahead and process a passport for him to make sure he is available in the game against Senegal, Mulindwa said.
Massa is a 20-year old fleet-footed player, who by his own revelation, started playing football at the age of five.
Although his fast pace and good crosses from either flank make him stand out, Massa also loves to play in the lead strikerís role. He was the top scorer in Sweden Division One league with 18 goals last year.
I think the best position for me is the wing, because then i can use my technical ability, my speed and my good crosses, Massa said on his blog.
