Uganda Cranes coach Sebestien Desabre has added Vipers’ midfield gem Taddeo Lwanga and KCCA striker Derrick Nsibambi to the team that will play two friendlies in March.
Also included among the late calls is Buildcon striker Fahad Bayo who joined the club from Proline early this year.
Bayo and Nsibambi are summoned after the FA confirmed Farouk Miya and Edirisa Lubega who are on the original squad opted out due documentation.
“Miya and Lubega will not be available for duty as they need to finalise with documentation of their work permits where they are playing from,” explained FUFA Head of Communication. “However the coach will continue monitoring the progress of these players at their respective clubs,” he added.
Uganda Cranes will enter camp on Monday, March 19 ahead of the two friendlies to be played on March 24 and March 27.
The Cranes will play Malawi in an international friendly on Tuesday, March 27 at Mandela National Stadium and will be engaged in another friendly earlier on March 24 with a yet to be named opponent.
