One nation under football

Ugandans are united in their overwhelming love of football. Whenever the Cranes, our national team, line up for an international match at Nelson Mandela Stadium, all roads lead to Namboole hill on which the world-class facility sits. Thousands of fans draped and painted in the black, yellow and red of our flag, converge, vuvuzelas blaring, by whatever conveyance — foot, boda-boda, matatu or private car — can get them to the kick-off on time.
