Midfielder Yusuf Ssozi’s chances of featuring for the Uganda Cranes at Chan 2020 have been dented due to a long term injury.

The midfielder played a role in the qualification featuring in back to back wins against Burundi.

“We thought it wasn’t going to take long but it appears he got a tear on the meniscus,” confirmed his Club coach Abdallah Mubiru.

“He is still out for 6-8 weeks according to the medical team,” he added.

Ssozi has been down since the start of the second round with his only appearance coming in the 2-1 win at Wakiso Giants where he came off injured.
