The former AFC Leopards player is currently with the national team in Abu Dhabi, preparing for the biannual competition.
In an interview with The Monitor, Kateregga admitted that competition within the squad is stiff but exuded confidence that he will make it to Egypt.
"The competition has been tough almost everywhere I have played, and I have surprised myself by keeping winning so am sure am up to the task or else I wouldn’t be here in the first place,” Kateregga told Uganda’s leading daily The Monitor.
“It’s an honour to represent my country at any level but a special honor and privilege to be part of the team preparing for Afcon finals in Egypt, it helps me inspire myself to greater heights.
"My goal is to help the country better our performance from the last finals and everything else shall come after that.”
The Cranes will play Turkmenistan in a friendly match on Sunday (June 9) before facing Ivory Coast on June 15.
Uganda have been drawn in Group A at the Afcon finals, alongside hosts Egypt, DR Congo and Zimbabwe.
