Kampala, Uganda | FUFA MEDIA | Uganda Cranes Squad has been reduced to 27 players as the team continues with its preparations for the TOTAL 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) Finals in Morocco.
The players have enjoyed four days of non-residential training at both Namboole stadium and Maroons Stadium where the new Head coach Sebastien Desabre took full charge since his appointment by FUFA on Thursday.
The team will now head to Africa Bible University in Lubowa for residential camp at 4pm before travelling to Masaka and Rwakitura on invitation of Uganda President Yoweri Museveni.
The squad will be reduced further to 23 players for the final submission to CAF by 3rd January, 2018. All training sessions starting Monday will be held at the nearby International School of Uganda (ISU), Lubowa.
