Uganda Cranes head coach Jonathan Mcknistry has named a 25 man CHAN Squad traveling to Cameroon for the Pre- CHAN Mini Tournament.
The Contingent of 25 players will depart to Cameroon on Monday afternoon (3pm).
The Pre-CHAN tournament involving Cameroon, Niger and Zambia will run between 1st and 7th January 2021.
