The Uganda Cranes camp was on Monday night boosted by the arrival of three foreign-based players ahead of the upcoming FIFA World Cup Qualifiers.

Uganda is currently preparing for a double header against Rwanda, this week.

Timothy Awanyi, Fahad Bayo and Mustafa Kizza joined camp at Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisaasi.

The three arrived barely 24 hours after the second batch of foreign-based players that included Tadeo Lwanga, Khalid Aucho, Isaac Muleme, Moses Waiswa and Ismail Watenga had arrived.

Charles Lukwago was the first to jet into camp, last week.

With all the players that were summoned, now in camp, the Cranes are expected to continue preparations before departure to Kigali where they will play away to Rwanda on Thursday, October 7.

From there, Uganda will host the Amavubi Stars at Kitende on October 10.

Captain Khalid Aucho and head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic will address the media on Tuesday, before the team departs for Rwanda.

The Cranes are currently third in group E with two points from as many games following goalless draws against Kenya and Mali.
