Uganda name 30-man squad ahead of Ghana clash next month

Uganda coach Milutin Sredejovic has named a 30-man squad to face Ghana next month in their opening Group E 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier.

The Cranes have planned to camp in Togo where they will play the Sparrow Hawks in an international friendly before meeting the Black Stars in Tamale.

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) believes the training camp in West Africa will help them acclimatize and check the state of players physically and technically.

Uganda are on cloud nine after breaking a 38-year-old barricade by qualifying for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations to be staged in Gabon between January-February 2017.
