Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin Sredojevic has named a squad of 24 players for the Regional tour of Buganda.

According to a statement from FUFA, the team that has been summoned will enter camp on Friday 18th August 2023 at Cranes Paradise Hotel, Kisasi.  

The squad includes locally based players who are part of the provision squad that was summoned to prepare for the AFCON qualifying campaign while others were called to join the ranks. They will play a regional tour match in Luweero at Kasana Grounds on Saturday. 

The players are Lukwago Charles, Mutakubwa Joel, Maxwell Owachigu, Okumu Rogers, Mato Brian-NEC FC, Mwere Nicholas, Lutalo Umaru, Semakula Kenneth, Bayiga Patrick, Kasozi Samson, Otti Ronald, Mulambuzi Hamza and Kasonko George.

Others are Adriko Rogers, Tembo Ibrahim, Ojok Darius, Mugisha Rogers, Bwambale Lazarus, Kalyoowa Reagan, Kawawa Rashid, Kamwesiga Jacob, Omedi Denis, Kawooya Andrew, and Oshaba Marvin.  

“The selected local-based players will then return to the camp on 28th August 2023 for Uganda Crane’s duty against Niger.” Reads part of the statement from FUFA  

Micho also noted that after this trip, the Cranes will have an international friendly match that will be used to test the local-based players before they face off with Niger.

”On September 2nd, we are looking forward to an international friendly match for the locally based players to test them.” Micho said  

“The team will assemble in Marrakech, Morocco on September 3rd and 4th. There will be three training sessions on the 4th, 5th, and 6th of September.” Micho said. 

Uganda will play Niger on 7th September at Grand Stade Marrakech in Morocco. The Uganda Cranes find themselves on the verge of missing out on a consecutive appearance at the prestigious AFCON tournament. 

Currently occupying the third position in the standings with four points, the Cranes face stiff competition from Tanzania, who hold the second qualifying position with seven points.

With only one game left in the ongoing AFCON qualification campaign, Uganda will have to defeat Niger which has nothing to lose with a slightly more substantial goal margin as they also hope that Algeria defeats Tanzania by an even larger goal margin.
