Defenders Najib Fesali and Livingston Mulondo have made the final cut in the named squad to Kigali.
Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin Sredojevic has named the two central defenders after earning their maiden senior team call weeks ago.
The lucky- lanky center back Fesali makes the final team before even making a StarTimes Uganda premier league appearance.
Vipers’ Mulondo who was a main stay in the squad and had an impressive last season is as well given chance in the final team.
The 25 players will face Rwanda over two matches in the ongoing FIFA World Cup 2022 Qatar Qualifiers on 7th and 10th October 2021.
The team flies out tonight (10pm) aboard RwandaAir. The match in Kigali will be played on 7th October at 6pm (Rwanda Time) 7pm in Uganda.
