Coach Salim Jamal Muwonge was impressed with the first day and believes the players will be in good shape before the matches.

“Many of the players have not been active and therefore, the first task is to work on their fitness levels and make sure they are in good shape before the games. We believe entering in camp will have us to access every player,” said the coach.
