Uganda Cranes coach Mulitin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has named two Azam Uganda Premier League (UPL) players for the trip to Burkina Faso.

The two are KCCA duo of defenders Joseph Ochaya and Timothy Awany who will travel alongside 16 foreign based players for the group D away tie scheduled for March 26, 2016.

The team has two goalkeepers, five defenders, eight midfielders and three forwards.

The Cranes top the group with six points from two games and need to pick at least seven points from the remaining 12 to get assured of a slot in the finals where they last featured in 1978.
