Micho, the Cranes head coach, was delighted to have Wasswa back in his squad.

“His experience is of great importance to the team, other factors held constant. In this regard, he will help the team during the tournament,” Micho said.

After the inclusion of Hassan Wasswa and Ali Kimera, now the number of players in the camp has risen to 27 yet the head coach will have to chop the team to 23 players.

Although KCC are claiming that he is not attached to their club, FUFA says he has never got an international transfer certificate from Uganda.

“They told us they released him for trials and the next letter from the club stated that Hassan Wasswa shouldn’t fool the Federation to be issued with an ITC because he still has a running contract,” explained Edgar Watson, the CEO of FUFA.

The CHAN tournament is only legible for players attached to a club in their native countries.

Hassan Wasswa was the team captain during the CHAN qualifiers and there is hope that he will be handed the arm-band again to lead Cranes in CHAN.

Nicolas Wadada, the right back missing out on the Cranes squad for a week now, is yet to be replaced.

“He got a big cut and he may not be able to make it to the final squad,” noted Micho.

There is rumour that the KCC duo strikers; Herman Wasswa and Tonny Odur, will be left out too.

The technical team is concerned about Odur’s discipline and they are thinking he may be unruly in the camp but surprisingly, he may be called to join the team.
