Ugandan coach Abdallah Mubiru has recalled Kampala City Council Authority (KCCA FC) forward Mike Mutyaba for African Nations Championship (Chan) qualifying match against Burundi.
Mutyaba is making a comeback to the national team after five years in the cold, necessitated by his decision to quit the international stage.
However, after rescinding the move to retire, coach Mubiru has handed the gifted attacker another chance to earn more caps with the Cranes and he will be part of the squad to face Burundi away in Bujumbura on September 20.
Mutyaba’s last match for the Cranes was against Liberia in 2014. The Cranes have already moved to a residential camp in preparations for the fixture.
