WEDNESDAY 2018 CHAN WRAP: Uganda name 4 Under-20’s to final 23

Sports WEDNESDAY 2018 CHAN WRAP: Uganda name 4 Under-20's to final 23

Uganda Under-20 striker and 2017 COSAFA U20 Cup Golden Boot winner Shaban Mohammad is set for a Zambia reunion after making The Cranes final 23-member 2018 CHAN team.

Shaban, who scored four goals for Uganda at the COSAFA U20 Cup held in Kitwe in December, is one of four Uganda U20 players in their CHAN team.

The striker infamously scored a brace against hosts Zambia Under-20 in Uganda’s 2-0 win to set into motion Young Chipolopolo’s eventual group stage exit from the competition.

Goalkeeper Saidi Keni, midfielders Milton Karisa and Abubaker Kasule, who all prominently featured at the COSAFA U20 Cup, are also in the final team.

But, defender Mustapha Kiiza failed to make the final cut for the tournament Morocco is hosting from January 12 to February 4.

Uganda will face Zambia in both sides opening Group match on January 14 in Marrakech.

It will be the two sides’ second successive CHAN meeting between the two sides after Zambia won 1-0 in another group stage match at Rwanda 2016.

Meanwhile, Uganda wrapped up their friendly scheduled on Tuesday with a 1-0 loss to fellow finalists Congo-Brazzaville in Rabat just three days following a 1-1 draw with Guinea in another warm-up at the same venue.
