Police Football Club midfielder Yusuf Ssozi will command his first start in the Uganda Cranes’ team against Burundi during the return leg of the TOTAL Championship of African Nations (CHAN) qualifier at Lugogo Stadium, Kampala.

Ssozi replaces injured KCCA midfielder Muzamiru Mutyaba who has not trained with the team for a week.
