The Federation of Uganda Football Associations have announced their match day squad for Tuesday’s international friendly against Nigeria at the Stephen Keshi Stadium in Asaba.
The official website of the Ugandan Federation confirmed that only eighteen players were in the traveling party to the Delta State capital.
Only two players classed as strikers – Patrick Kaddu (KCCA FC) and Derrick Nsibambi (Smouha FC) – traveled with the team and that means their star player, Simba’s Emma Okwi will not earn his 66th cap against the Super Eagles.
Despite being suspended for the AFCON qualifier against Cape Verde last weekend, Okwi was called up by the Ugandan Federation for a residential training camp during the international break.
Uganda qualified for the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations courtesy of their 1-0 win over the Blue Sharks on match day five.
