Proline FC striker Edris Lubega has replaced Francis Olaki in the Uganda Cranes squad for CHAN 2016 due to start in Rwanda on 16th January.
The medical team at the Cranes camp in Njeru led by Dr. Ronald Kisolo assessed Olaki after the international friendly game against Gabon on Sunday but he was discovered to have suffered a recurrence of a troublesome knee injury.
FUFA acting CEO Decolas Kizza confirmed the development to www.fufa.co.ug
Prudent to CAF Medical committee rules for the tournament Article 72 section 2, FUFA’s communication on the latest development was received in affirmative by the continental body. The change has been accepted and FUFA is handling the matter.
The team departs on Saturday evening at 5 O’clock.
Uganda Cranes will play their opening match against Mali on Tuesday 19th January in Rubavu.
