Confederation of Africa Football (CAF) has confirmed that Uganda Cranes will now play Somalia in the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) 2020 qualifiers.
Originally, Uganda had been scheduled to play South Sudan.
But, upon new changes (due to the withdraw of Ethiopia as hosts), Uganda Cranes will now face Somalia.
The first leg will be held between 26th to 28th July 2019 with the second leg happening between 2nd-4th August 2019.
Somalia will host the first leg in Mogadishu and Uganda Cranes will play the second leg in Kampala.
The winner between Uganda and Somalia over the two legs will face the victorious side between Burundi and South Sudan in the second round.
CHAN is a tournament exclusively played by locally based players plying their trade in the domestic leagues of the respective countries.
