Asante Kotoko striker, Steven Mukwala Dese has earned a call-up to the Uganda national team ahead of 2023 AFCON qualifiers against Tanzania later this month.[ads2]
The 23-year old has been handed an invitation by coach Milutin Micho Sredojevic for the double-header against the Taifa Stars.
Mukwala has been in a blistering form for Asante Kotoko since joining the club prior to the commencement of the 2022/23 league season after ending his stay at URA FC in Uganda.[ads3]
Uganda will host the first leg at the St Mary’s Stadium-Kitende on March 24 before the reverse fixture at the Benjamin Mkapa Stadium in Tanzania four days later.
Mukwala is expected to leave for Uganda to commence preparations for the double-header.[ads4]
He bagged eight league goals for the Ghanaian champions but ten in twenty-two matches across all competitions.
Mukwala has so far made ten caps for the Uganda senior national team since his debut in December, 2019 but yet to score.[ads5]
