With less than a month to the 2023 Africa Nations Championships (CHAN) finals, Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevich has confirmed a 35-man provisional squad.

Headlining the squad is the in-form Wakiso Giants FC trio of Ibrahim Kasule, Titus Ssematimba and Frank Sebuufu.

They have however been undone by the absence of Hassan Ssenyonjo, as he’s been equally brilliant this season.

The summoned three have been in scintillating form, linking up superbly on consistent occasions to destroy Uganda Premier League defences, and have thus been rewarded.

However, leading strikers of the ongoing Uganda Premier League missing out has seen many question the criteria used by the technical team.

Maroons forward Fred Amaku and Bright Stars hitman Nelson Senkatuka both on seven goals didn’t make the cut.

Further more, the other notable missing faces are; Yunus Sentamu of Vipers, Alex Kitata of Gaddafi and Karim Ndugwa of Bul FC all with six goals on their back.

The Algeria edition which is slated to kickstart on January 13th and run till February 04th 2023 and Uganda will hope Kasule who has five goals in the league takes the scoring form to North Africa .

Uganda is pitted in Group B along with Democratic Republic of Congo, Ivory Coast and Senegal, with the Cranes set to get off their campaign on January 14th against DRC at the 19 Mat Stadium, Annaba.
