  1. What has happened to players like Moses Oloya, Henry Kalungi, Mike Azira who have been very active with their respective clubs? It makes no sense to call players plying their trade in even weaker leagues than our local league and players like Iguma who have not kicked a ball since AFCON in January and ignore experienced players who can make great contributions to the team.

    1. I also wondering particularly KALUNGI who we need badly and he is active here in the league. Eb8ntu bya uganda banange

  2. If your selection was based on performance . How come Mike Azira is missing yet he starts for his team in every game and you call up Aucho Khalid who is not attached to any club ? please am not saying Aucho is a bad player but he has no club currently. Anyway I will do my duty of supporting my National.
