Uganda Cranes Irish born tactician Jonathan McKinstry has summoned 13 players that have converged at Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisasi and are set to depart to Dubai on Sunday in preparation for the South Sudan tie.

Summoned players include; Charles Lukwago, Joel Mutakubwa, Alionzi Nafian, David Owori, Abdul Karim Watambala, Kato Samuel, Halid Lwaliwa, Paul Patrick Mbowa, Saidi Kyeyune, Ibrahim Orit, Anukani Bright, Kagimu Shafik and Milton Kaliisa.

By Sunday the number shall be trimmed to eight players who will travel to Dubai connecting up with the foreign based players.

Vipers headcoach Fred Kajoba is reportedly sick and has been replaced by Ibrahim Mugisha as the goalkeeping coach for this camp.

Surprisingly, there is no place for last season’s UPL top scorer Steven Mukwala despite putting up strong performances for Maroons last season.
