The interim Head coach of the Uganda Cranes Abdallah Mubiru has named a 25 man squad for the international friendly match with Kenya to be played on 8th September 2019 in Nairobi.
Mubiru has included in the squad some of the players who featured in the 2019 AFCON Finals in Egypt.
The local based players will train on Thursday morning at the StarTimes Stadium (9am) before flying out the same day later in the evening while the foreign based stars will connect from their clubs direct to Kenya.
FUFA is using the FIFA intentional break to prepare some of the players for the two legged 2020 CHAN Qualifiers against Burundi and the 2021 AFCON Campaign that starts in November when Uganda Cranes plays Burkina Faso and Malawi.
Kenya were knocked out of the 2020 African Nation’s Championship (Chan) qualifiers by Tanzania following a 4-1 penalty shoot-out win at Kasarani in Nairobi. Both matches in the first and the second legs ended in goalless draws.
Kenya were pooled in Group G alongside Egypt, Togo Comoros and open up their 2021 Afcon qualification campaign against the Pharaohs of Egypt on November 11th, 2019 in Cairo.
