Uganda must beat Ghana at Namboole to maintain their slim chances of qualifying among the top two in Group E for next year’s Nations Cup finals in Morocco. Ghana top standings with eight points, followed by Togo on six. Uganda and Guinea have four apiece with two games left to play.

But before that, the Cranes play Ethiopia this Sunday in a friendly that is meant to prepare them for next Saturday’s Afcon qualifier. Cranes coach Micho Sredojevic on Wednesday named a 26-man provisional squad to prepare for the two games. El Merrikh goalkeeper, Jamal Salim and Vipers’ midfielder, Keziron Kizito are the first time national team call-ups in a squad that also sees the return of Lweza midfielder Mike Sserumaga after over a year out of the set-up.
