Kirizestom Ntambi, Vipers duo Allan Kayiwa and Karim Watambala have on Tuesday joined Uganda Cranes CHAN-bound team as the side intensified their preparations for the return leg against Burundi.
Kayiwa and Ntambi were the only local based players that were part of Uganda Cranes team that beat Ethiopia 1-0 on Sunday, and consequently missed the first three training sessions for the CHAN team.
Watambala was initially summoned but had not attended any session until Tuesday.
The team started non-residential training on Sunday, October 13, 2019 at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo under coach Abdallah Mubiru and he will NOT be joined by Jonathan Mckinstry as it was earlier reported.
They are now training twice in the day – morning and evening sessions.
Uganda who beat Burundi 3-0 away in Bujumbura will host the side in the return leg on Saturday, October 19.
There are now 26 players training before they enter residential camp.
