Cranes captain Denis Onyango joined the camp on Tuesday morning as the team continues preparations for the upcoming AFCON qualifiers.

Uganda is slated to face both Burkina Faso and Malawi this week in what will be the final qualification games for next year’s tournament.

With 23 players already training, Onyango become the 24th to enter camp with just over 24 hours for the first game at Kitende.

Worryingly for the Cranes technical team, the Israel based trio of Kizito Luwaga, Fahad Bayo and Timothy Awanyi are yet to jet in.

The team took part in their last training on Tuesday starting at 10pm but Onyango sat it out.

Uganda takes on Burkina Faso on Wednesday at Kitende before facing Malawi on the weekend.

The Cranes are currently second in group B of the qualifiers with seven points from four games.

They require just two draws in their final two games to seal a spot at next year’s finals.
