Uganda coach Milutin Sredejovic has named a 30-man squad to face Ghana next month in their opening Group E 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier in Tamale.

A bulk of foreign based players will fly directly to Lome where the team will assemble on Monday, 3rd October 2016 before a general training session ahead of the international friendly match with Togo the following day.

The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) believes the training camp in West Africa will help them acclimatise and check the state of players physically and technically.
