The Uganda Cranes will face Mali in an international friendly scheduled for Friday 13th October in Bamako, Mali.

The Cranes will officially start a new life after Milutin Sredojevic ‘Micho’ who was relieved of his duties as head coach a fortnight ago.

Micho was in charge as the Uganda Cranes agonizingly fell short of qualifying for the 2024 Africa Cup of Nations.

While the search for a new head coach is on, FUFA intends to utilize the upcoming international window with a trip to Mali.

The game will be played at the Stade du 26 Mars in Bamako at 1900hrs.

The last time Uganda played against Mali was during the group stages of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

The first meeting ended goalless at Kitende with defender Murushid Juuko receiving a red card for a dangerous play on striker Ibrahima Kone.
