2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers

Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has summoned a preliminary squad of 30 players to prepare for both the local and foreign training camps prior to the first 2022 World Cup Qualifiers due next month against neighbours Kenya.

All players summoned will have to undergo a mandatory COVID-19 test before entering residential camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel on Saturday, according to a statement released by FUFA.

Training will commence on Monday, 16th August at a venue that will be communicated later. This will go on up to Saturday before the team departs for the foreign camp in Jordan.

In Jordan, Uganda Cranes will have two friendly games against the Syria National Team coming on 23rd and 26th August.

The team will then depart for Ethiopia on 27th August for another friendly game two days later. The remaining foreign based players will join the team here.

Uganda is in Group E of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers alongside Kenya, Rwanda, and Mali and will kick off its campaign en route to Qatar with the first duel against Kenya on September 1, 2021, in Nairobi, the country’s capital.
