Milton Karisa is part of the four local based players summoned by Desabre

Uganda Cranes Coach Sebestien Desabre has named an almost a foreign based squad for the upcoming March friendlies.

The four are Vipers’ right back and Captain Nicholas Wadada, teammate Milton Karisa, Masavu’s sensation Abraham Ndugwa and KCCA new skipper Timothy Awany.

The French man had praise for the top division and explained why he went for many foreign based players in the squad.

“I have not neglected the local based players because I have watched the league and I’m impressed with the level of competition,” he told the media. “I saw many during the CHAN tournament in Morocco so I wanted to use these upcoming friendlies to look at the foreign based players,” noted Sebastien.

Uganda will face a yet to be named opponent on March 24 and three days later, take on Malawi.

All games will be at Mandela National stadium, Namboole in preparation for games against Tanzania and Malawi later this year.
