Uganda Cranes head coach Johnathan McKinstry has announced a squad of 20 foreign-based players for the double header against South Sudan in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers scheduled for next month.

William Luwagga, Fahad Bayo, Derrick Nsibambi and Timothy Awany are back in squad after missing out on the Dubai camp while there are two debutants summoned – striker Uche Ikpeazu Mubiru and right back Elvis Bwomono.

Jayden Onen and Allan Katerega are the omissions from the players that travelled to Dubai earlier this month while Bevis Mugabi misses out due to a long term injury he sustained while featuring for his club Motherwell in Scotland.

The foreign based players will later be joined by about five locally based players that will be named.

Uganda will face South Sudan on 9th and 17th November in a double header. The Cranes are top of the table with four points from the opening two qualification games – an away goalless draw against Burkina Faso and a 2-0 win against Malawi at Namboole.
