Uganda Cranes squad to play Mawejje testimonial matches, mini tournament in Libya summoned

Coach Milutin Sredojevic has on Monday named Uganda Cranes squad largely composed of U23 to feature in the Tonny Mawejje testimonial matches and the forthcoming Tri Nations tournament in Libya.

The gaffer announced a squad of 35 including six foreign based players that will take part in the aforementioned tasks.

The Mawejje testimonial matches will be played this week on Wednesday and Friday in Lugogo and Masaka respectively.

The two games are in honour of former Uganda Cranes midfielder Mawejje who has decided to retire from football. He featured for the national team between 2004-2018 making 84 appearances and scoring 8 goals.

Coach Milutin however indicates that the foreign based legion and players from Vipers will not feature in the testimonial matches but instead will join the team ahead of the trip to Libya.

“The six foreign based players and four players from Vipers SC will not be available for the testimonial matches but instead will join us on Sunday as we travel to Libya,” he said.

The players include goalkeeper Giosue Bellagambi from Huddersfield Town FC, Abdul Azizi Kayondo, Musa Ramathan, Steven Sserwadda, Derrick Kakooza and Sadat Anaku.

The Vipers players on the other hand are Hillary Mukundane, Abdu Karim Watambala, Bright Anukani and Najib Yiga.

After the two testimonial matches, the team will travel to Libya on Sunday for a tri-nation tournament in Benghazi.
