The Kampala City Capital Authority midfielder, 25, also captained Uganda to the 2012 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup triumph in Kampala last December and will haunt Taifa Stars again in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) 1st leg qualifying fixture between Tanzania and Uganda to take place on the 13th July 2013 at the National Stadium in Dar es salaam.

He was told at a team meeting this morning after Micho decided to delay his announcement until after the tem entered residential training on Friday.

It caps an incredible rise for the former St George (Ethiopia), Cape Town (South Africa), Karabukspor, Altay and Erciyesspor (Turkey) midfielder.

“All the players enjoy his company and that’s the impression I get being around him and coaching him.

“He’s infectious in what he does on the football pitch and a real team player.

“In this day and age in football, where people talk about selfish individuals, a workaholic on and off the soccer ground and experienced”, Micho told ChimpSport after the appointment.

Wasswa has won 27 caps since his debut in 2006 and featured in all of Uganda’s games in 2013.

Sports Club Victoria University defender Denis Guma is his assistant.

Meanwhile, FUFA Chief Executive Officer Edgar Watson yesterday confirmed that the federation had called off preparations for the friendly with immediate effect on advice by FIFA.

“We are not going to Iraq. The programme has been cancelled. We are trying to seek for another alternative if possible,” Watson told reporters on Friday.

On Thursday, FIFA re-imposed its ban on Iraq against hosting international friendlies due to security concerns

And the team has entered residential training starting Saturday, 6th July at Sky Hotel, Ntinda with Sports Club Victoria University defender Savio Kabugo completing the team after returning from trials at Bidvest University in South Africa.
