Uganda Cranes manager Bobby Williamson is expected to name a squad of 22 players today toprepare for an international friendly with Rwanda National football team at Amahoro stadium in Kigali next Wednesday.
Rwanda football federation (FERWAFA) has invited the Uganda Cranes on a fully paid expenses trip to Kigali to challenge the hosts as the Stars gauge their readiness ahead of a 2014 World Cup qualifiers against Mali.
Efforts to reach Williamson for a comment yesterday were futile but Cranes media manager Katende Malibu confirmed the trip saying that the team will have a three day training starting tomorrow before departure to Rwanda on Tuesday.
"It is on short notice but worth taking up. Coach (Bobby) is going to name a squad by midday tomorrow (today) and training will start on Saturday," Malibu said.
Bottom in Group H Rwanda's Amavubi Stars cannot take chances against Mali in the Brazil world cup qualifiers in Kigali on March 22. On the same day second placed in Group J Uganda Cranes take on Liberia's Lone Stars away in Monrovia.
Kenya and Tanzania also play on Wednesday when they host Libya and Cameroon in Nairobi and Dar es Salam respectively.
