Uganda names squad for Egypt double-header

Uganda names squad for Egypt double-header
24 August 2017 12:03

Uganda Interim Coach, Moses Basena, has named a 27-man squad to face Egypt in a FIFA World Cup Russia 2018 double-header against Egypt.

The Cranes host the Pharaohs in a Group E Day three clash on Thursday, 31 August 2017, in Kampala before travelling five days later to the Mediterranean resort city of Alexandria for the reverse.

There are a number of returnees such as Zambia-based defender, Isaac Isinde who features at Buildcon, midfielder William Luwagga Kizito who has just signed for CSM Politehnica Iași in Romania and defensive midfielder Ivan ‘Kojja’ Ntege, who recently joined Botswana champions, Township Rollers.

Luwagga turned down call-ups under former coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredejovic, but Basena who deputized for the latter has decided to offer him a second chance.

The Cranes have four points after two rounds of matches, two behind leaders Egypt. Ghana and Congo trail in that order with a point and no point respectively.

Uganda are hoping for a first ever qualification to the Mundial since its inception in 1930.
