Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has summoned the Uganda Cranes squad that will start preparations for the upcoming 2023 AFCON Qualifiers.
Huddersfield Town goalkeeper Bellagambi Giousue is part of the squad that was announced on Sunday, May 22.
Bellagambi who is 20-years old joined Huddersfield Town from National League side Ebbsfleet United at the start of the 2021/22 season.
He has not featured in a single Championship game this season as Huddersfield makes attempts to return to the English Premier League.
The English-born shot stopper is one of three goalkeepers that have been summoned in the squad. The others are Ethiopian based Charles Lukwago and URA FC’s Alionzi Nafian.
Uganda will open their campaign with an away fixture against Algeria on 4th June in Oran followed by a home game, four days later (8th June) with Niger at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
The players will enter camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel-Kisasi on Monday 23rd May 2022 at 8am. The training programme will start 10am using the Fast Fusion Indoor Facility and Gym.
