BUIKWE, Uganda, Oct. 2 (Xinhua) -- Five Eritrean Under 20 team footballers have disappeared in Uganda ahead of their game against Kenya in the ongoing regional football tournament, a top official said on Wednesday.

Aimable Habimana, the Chairman of the Organising Committee of the Council of East and Central African Football Associations (CECAFA) told Xinhua in an interview that the players disappeared on Tuesday.

"The five players are missing at the Speke Apartments. We are hoping that they will have a full team to continue with the tournament," Habimana said in the central Ugandan district of Buikwe where the CECAFA U-20 tournament is taking place.

During training on Tuesday the Eritrean team only had 14 members minus the five players. They are supposed to face Kenya in one of the semifinals on Wednesday.
