English sky bet Championship side Wycombe Wanderers’ forward, Uche Ikpeazu Mubiru is delighted with the Uganda Cranes call up ahead of the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers double header against South Sudan next months.

Uche Ikpeazu who is born to Nigerian father and Uganda mother, is eligible to represent both countries  but it seems he has already chosen Uganda ahead of Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The 25 year old forward received first Uganda Cranes call by Johnathan Mcknistry in March  2020 for the African Cup of Nations Qualifiers games but due to Covid-19 pandemic the games were postponed.

Uche Mubiru did even miss a 9 day training camp that was organised in Dubai due to injury.

“It’s an honor to be called up and i am looking forward to representing my Country in the up and coming fixtures.” Uche tweeted.

Since joining Wycombe Wanderers in July from Scottish outfit, Hearts of  Middlothian, he has made only two appearances against (Black Burn Rovers and Norwich  City FC) from seven games that have been played.

Wycombe Wanderers have lost all their games.

Uganda Cranes will host South Sudan on 12th November 2020 and travel for the return tie on 16th November 2020 in Nairobi.
