MENGO – KCCA FC in-form forward Allan Okello has been included in the Uganda Cranes team that will take on Kenya this Sunday.

Uganda is set to play an international friendly with the Harambe Stars at the Moi International Stadium and Okello who has scored 9 goals in his last 10 outings for his club side is part of a squad of 25 players that were summoned by interim head coach Abdallah Mubiru.

The squad which was announced on Monday features 13 players who were part of the Cranes team that reaches the last 16 of the Africa Cup of Nations 2019.

Mamelodi Sundowns goalkeeper Denis Onyango will once again lead the side and is one of four custodians that have been summoned. KCCA FC’s Charles Lukwago, Kyetume’s Joel Mutakubya and Guinea-based Robert Odongkara are the other goalkeepers on the list.

Eleven of the 25 players on the list, feature in the StarTimes Uganda Premier league with KCCA FC having 6 players.

The 11 local-based players that have been summoned will train on Thursday morning at the StarTimes Stadium (9 am) before flying out the same day later in the evening while the foreign-based stars will connect from their clubs direct to Kenya.

Uganda is using the FIFA intentional break to prepare some of the players for the two-legged 2020 CHAN Qualifiers against Burundi and the 2021 AFCON Campaign that starts in November when Uganda Cranes plays Burkina Faso and Malawi.
