Uganda Cranes Head coach Johnathan McKinstry has named a 22-player squad from Uganda Premier League ahead of South Sudan doubleheader.
From these 22, five or six will be selected to join the initial list of 20 foreign based players for the upcoming AFCON Qualifiers.
Tonny Mawejje, Murushid Juuko and Denis Iguma who have joined UPL in this window, have been named in the squad.
The squad will undergo rigorous assessment between 2nd and 8th November 2020 before the final selection is made, FUFA has said.
The dates for Uganda Cranes’ group B Africa Cup of Nations Qualifier double-header with South Sudan was adjusted.
Uganda Cranes will host South Sudan on November 12th at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
The second leg, earlier on November 17, has been brought forward to 16th in Kenya.
The Cranes lead group B with four points and maximum points in both headers will all but guarantee a place in Cameroon finals in 2022.
