Cranes defender, Godfrey Wlusimbi,30 nicknamed ‘Jjajja Walu’ has called it quits to international football, the player has announced.
In a letter to the local football governing body, FUFA, the pint-sized defender says it is time to quit after serving the national team diligently for the last 10 years.
“It has been 10 years down the road having a great honour and so privileged to represent my country Uganda in international football tournament, »Walusimbi says in his letter to FUFA.
” I have decided to let the young ones showcase their abilities too and hope they will embody the national team.”
By the time he quit national duty, Jjajja Walu has been the most capped Uganda Cranes player in the current set up with over 100 caps to his name as a left-back where he tormented a number of the opponents who faced Cranes.
He has represented senior national football team in all competitions including the World Cup qualifiers, African nations Cup qualifiers and CECAFA among others.
He has also been privileged to don the national colours as Uganda played in the African Nations Cup in 2017 after almost a four-decade absence and the recent one earlier this year in Egypt.
Walusimbi currently plies his trade at Albanian premier league side, KF Vllaznia that he joined after quitting Kaizer Chiefs in South Africa.
