The final Uganda Cranes squad for this year’s CHAN Finals has been named by Head coach Sebastien Desabre.
After two build up matches, a draw with Guinea (1-1) and a 1-0 loss to Congo, the Frenchman was in position to check on the players who were in camp and come up with the final 23-man list.
Tom Masiko and Mustapha Kizza are the two players dropped and will return home from camp where they have been with the team in Rabat since last Thursday.
The team will remain in Rabat before moving to Marrakech where group B matches will be played.

The competition will be hosted in Morocco from January 12 to February 4.
