Uganda will be seeking to finish off the job they started two weeks ago in Kampala after demolishing South Sudan 5-1 in the first leg of the 2018 Afcon qualifiers.
The return leg will be played in Juba on Saturday, 21st, April, 2018.
Uganda will be without youngster Mustafa Kizza who was shown red in the previous game but Ivan Eyamu who missed on the squad that played the first leg due to delayed passport has his issues sorted and has been included on the traveling squad this time.
Striker Makweth Wol who turns out for Uganda Premier League side Mbarara city FC is another addition to the South Sudanese squad and will be expected to lead their attacks.
