Kyetume FC and Uganda Cranes midfielder Nicholas Kasozi made the 30-man list of players summoned by Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic in a bid to intensify preparations for the upcoming FIFA2022 World Cup Qualifiers.
The former KCCA midfielder received this summon after a couple of years absent from the national team step up thanks to his inconsistency in terms of performances.
He made a good account of himself the previous season while with Kyetume FC nevermind the fact that the Mukono side was unable to shrug off the relegation advances.
His performances were however great, impressive and inspirational in the entire campaign, so much so that the versatile anchorman has earned a call up to the national team since the departure of Jonathan Mckinstry.
In a short interview with the press at the Kabira Country club, Kasozi highlighted his readiness to work hard and utilise this massive second opportunity granted to him.
“I am happy to be here and ready to give my all for the team through hardwork so as to ensure that I make the final squad that will play the upcoming friendly matches.” An ecstatic Kasozi said.
He would add: “l am also excited to work with coach Micho again because he has my trust and utmost respect. I promise to repay this belief the gaffer has shown to me.”
Kasozi would further highlight his excitement to handle and work with the stiff competition for positions in the squad, stating the importance of this battle in the team.
The Uganda Cranes have since had their scheduled training camp in Jordan where they were slated to face Syria in two friendly games cancelled due to the tough to navigate SOPs surrounding the serge of Covid-19.
As FUFA tries to remedy this, the team will prepare to face Ethiopia in a friendly game before starting the World Cup Qualifiers campaign against Kenya on 2nd September in Nairobi and eventually playing against Mali on 5th September at the St Mary’s stadium in Kitende.
