Mukiibi was born in Sweden and once turned down a Uganda Cranes call-up for the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations tournament in Gabon, claiming it was a difficult and different level to what he is used to.

His club Ostersunds competes in Allsvensken, a Swedish top tier division where they currently sit 6th on the log with 23 points from 14 league matches.

Mukiibi who rubbed shoulders with Galatasaray’s cream of Maicon, Muslera and Bafetimbi Gomis will be part of the Ostersunds team that will visit Telekom Stadium in Instabul for their Europa return leg with Galatasaray on Thursday, July 20.
