Coach Hamza Lutalo has summoned a provisional squad for the Uganda Cubs ahead of the 2021 Africa U17 Cup of Nations.

The squad of 41 players will report to Njeru camp on Tuesday, FUFA has revealed.

Uganda will be taking part at the AFCON U17 in Morocco next month.

The summoned squad include largely of the team that played at Cecafa U17 in Rwanda last year including target man Oscar Mawa.

Basil Tenywa Juma (United Kingdom) and Lloyd Tendo (France) are the two foreign based players on the team.

The Cubs reached this stage after winning the CECAFA U17 Championship held in Rwanda last year to return to the Continent for another straight edition.

This, will be the first edition in Africa U-17 Cup of Nations to have expanded to 12 teams instead of eight.

The top four teams of the tournament would have normally qualified for the 2021 FIFA U-17 World Cup in Peru as the CAF representatives. However, FIFA decided on 24 December 2020 to cancel the tournament due to COVID-19 pandemic.

Nigeria, Ivory Coast, Tanzania, South Africa, Zambia and hosts Morocco are some of the countries to take part at this year’s Championship.
