Five KCCA FC players have been summoned for National Duty ahead of a two-legged clash with South Sudan.
Uganda Cranes Head coach Jonathan McKinstry released a list of 22 home-based players from which 5 or 6 players will be considered for the main squad of 20 foreign-based named last week. McKinstry has confirmed that the team will undergo rigorous assessment between 2nd and 8th November 2020 before the final selection is made.
Captain and club custodian Charles Lukwago is one of the five players to be summoned to the national team and is joined by defenders Kato Samuel and Iguma Dennis, midfielder Bright Anukani, and forward Brian Aheebwa.
Dennis Iguma, a mainstay in the national team, returned to the fold after he missed out on several squads due to the knee injury he sustained in March 2019. The versatile defender will be doing everything he can to repay the faith the national team Head coach Johnathan McKinstry has shown in him.
Uganda will take on South Sudan on 12th November at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende, with kick-off set for 4 pm before facing off again 4 days later in Nairobi.
