Uganda Cranes head coach Micho Sredojevic has released the 23 man squad that will represent Uganda in the forthcoming CHAN.

Najib Yiga and Siraje Sentamu have been part of the squad in Tunisia but will not travel to Algeria due to injuries.

“Ssentamu and Yiga suffered injuries and can’t continue with the preparations. It’s tough for any coach to release players who have been part of the training for long but factors beyond our control, can’t allow us to take Yiga and Ssentamu to Algeria. Both players will remain part of our future plans with the AFCON qualifiers coming up in March.” Said coach Micho

Uganda Cranes is in group B alongside DR Congo, Senegal and Ivory Coast.
