Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has named Uganda Cranes provisional squad to start preparations for the 2022 Africa Nations Championship qualifiers.
The 40-man squad has five goalkeepers, fifteen defenders, eight midfielders and twelve forwards.
“Having in mind that Tanzania has a double header against Somalia with both games played in Dar es Salaam, chances are high that we will face Tanzania though I do not want to rule out the surprise element of football,” Micho told the Fufa website.
“With our target set at qualifying to the final tournament for the final tournament, we have to start preparing early enough.”
The team will enter residential camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel, Kisasi on Monday, 25th July 2022.
The winner between Somalia and Tanzania will host Uganda between 26th -29th August.
The return leg will be played at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende with the winner on aggregate qualifying to the final tournament slated for January in Algeria.
