International Friendly Match
 
Sunday
 
Ethiopia v Uganda Cranes
 
Newly appointed Uganda Cranes coach Johnathan McKinstry believes the international friendly match between Uganda and Ethiopia slated for this Sunday in Bahrdar town will help him to know most of the professional based players.
 
"The squad that has been summoned is largely reflective of the team that was selected for the Africa Cup of Nations in Egypt. The primary reason is to allow me to get to know the players, start building relationships with them and assess their qualities in a training environment," McKinstry said.
 
"We have not included any of the home-based players because the following week after the match in Ethiopia, there will be a second CHAN qualifier at home against Burundi but will be considered for AFCON Qualifiers in November. Over the next two weeks, it will give me a good opportunity to work with around 45 - 47 of our top players -both local and foreign-based," he added.

The essence of this international friendly match is to help preparations for the two AFCON 2021 qualifiers coming up in November 2019.
