Godfrey Walusimbi established his career as was one of the best defenders to grace Ugandan football that he became a prominent feature in the national team.
Walusimbi officially announced his retirement from international football on Friday, October 11 which brought an end to a ten-year journey with the Uganda Cranes.
Daily Monitor reported that the 30-year-old revealed the news in a letter to the Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) with the announcement coming as abrupt and unexpected to the fans.
“It’s been 10 years down the road having a great honour and so privileged to represent my country Uganda in international football tournaments,” Walusimbi said.
“I believe I have done my best concerning representation with full abilities, so to that I decided to let the younger ones showcase their abilities too, and we hope they too will embody the spirit of the nation.”
Walusimbi who has also plied his trade for SC Villa, Bunamwaya and most recently Kaizer Chiefs leaves a rather huge gap in the team with Joseph Ochaya and Isaac Muleme having to compete for his position.
