Uganda head coach Johnathan McKinstry has pointed out 25-man squad for the pre -CHAN tournament which will be held ahead of the African Nations Championship (Chan).

Uganda Cranes will take part in the mini-tournament as part of their preparations ahead of continental competition that will be held in January in Cameroon. The pre-Chan tournament consists of Cameroon, Niger and Zambia and will be played from January 1 to 7.

Players from Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA FC) will join the rest after the second leg Caf Confederation Cup tie against AS Kigali of Rwanda.

The first leg was cancelled when KCCA failed to raise the minimum number of players for the match in Kigali and the Rwandan side were awarded a walkover.

McKinstry will lead the team alongside Livingstone Mbabazi and Abdallah Mubiru acting as his assistants. Hamid Juma has been selected as the leader of the delegation while the performance coach is Alexander McCarthy.

Since Fred Kajoba was dismissed from the camp for allegedly breaking coronavirus protocols, Sadiq Wasswa will take charge of the goalkeeper coaching responsibilities.
