A host of all-star names will be on show when the current Uganda Cranes takes on Tonny Mawejje’s All Star Team from the previous national team sides on September 14 and 16 at Lugogo and Masaka Recreation Ground respectively.

Former national team captain Denis ‘Masinde’ Onyango who features for South Africa’s Mamelodi Sundowns leads the cast of stars that mainly represented Uganda at Afcon 2017.

Mawejje was part of the squad that ended a 39 year wait for an Afcon finals appearance and has gone with most of the team that played in Gabon.
