Uganda-Lesotho game postponed
The African Cup of Nations trophy
The Nations Cup qualifier between Uganda and Lesotho has been delayed
The Group Three African Cup of Nations qualifier between Lesotho and Uganda has been postponed until 19 June after the match officials failed to arrive on time on Sunday.

The match officials from Tanzania were held up en route to Maseru and arrived too late for the game to be played in daylight.

As the floodlights at the stadium had not been tested, the decision was made to postpone the game.

The Lesotho Football Association (Lefa) did arrange for match officials from South Africa to take charge of the game so that it could be played on Sunday, but this move was rejected by Uganda.

The Confederation of African Football's match commissioner Frans Samaria Killa of Namibia agreed that the match should go ahead on Tuesday instead.
