As Uganda Cranes coach, Jonathan Mckinstry summoned a squad for competitive action back in March, Derick Nsibambi former KCCA player, was struggling for playing time in Egypt at his Smouha club.
By then, the forward had just returned to Egypt 2months earlier after the club had reportedly defaulted on Players’ remuneration.
Subsequently, he was eliminated from the Cranes summoned squad ahead of the doubleheader against South Sudan in March as Mckinstry decided to replace him with Uchechukwu Mubiru and Sweden based player, Alexis Bakka and Emma Okwi. Fahah Bayo had previously returned was also placed ahead of Nsibambi.
However, Nsibambi’s performance in the Egyptian league is likely to persuade Mckinstry to revive his decision earlier made. This is because after being moved to the right-sided role behind leading striker Hossam Hassan having been a conservative midfielder earlier, Nsibambi responded with a burst of 3 goals at the end of August and start of September.

Nsibambi gave his club Smouha the lead in the 1-1 draw with El Geish. He also scored at the 3-0 Smouha’s crucifixion of Tanta and also the 3-3 draw with Aswan.
Mckinstry in an interview on the FUFA website revealed that in-form players like Derick Nsibambi who are getting playing time every week be granted opportunity. This therefore leaves us optimistically expectant about his next move on Nsibambi.
