On Friday 28th December 2018, Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre marked one year in office as the national football team gaffer.

Desabre was unveiled a year ago as the Cranes gaffer, taking over from an interim Moses Basena, who had assumed the mantle of the team following the departure of then lead tactician Milutin ‘Micho” Sredojevic.
