Paul Mucureezi will hope his debut appearance on the Regional Tournament leaves a mark.

“I am very ready for the game, and taking part in this tournament is a great opportunity for me to expose my self.”

The June 22 fixture will give him a huge leap of faith if Cranes Interim Coach Moses Basena grants his wish.

Hosts Kenya opened with a 2-0 win over Rwanda in Monday’s opener at Kakamega while Libya and Tanzania settled for goalless stalemate in  the 2nd fixture  at Machakos,
