Uganda are in no mood to be distracted by the massive partying that followed their qualification to the Afcon after 38 years.

The Federation of Uganda Football Association (FUFA) have announced early plans to camp The Cranes in Togo ahead of the 2018 World Cup qualifying clash with Ghana.

This was confirmed by FUFA Communications Manager, Ahmed Hussein Ugandan, speaking to Ugandan website Kawowo Sports.

“Yes, the Uganda Cranes will hold a high profile training camp in Lome, Togo,” Hussein revealed.

Hussein also said the Cranes will fly directly to Lome, where they will climax their training program with a friendly against the Hawks of Togo on October 4, three days before facing Ghana in Tamale.

Head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic is expected to announce his squad on September 21 at FUFA House during a press conference.

Micho’s charges were a handful for the Black Stars the last time both countries met – during qualification for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations.

The Ugandans ground out a 1-1 draw in Kumasi on the opening day of qualifying, going on to win 1-0 back in Kampala on the penultimate match day. They however failed to qualify, finishing third in that group.

The other two teams in Group E of the 2018 World Cup Qualifiers are Republic of Congo and Egypt, who will square off two days later – October 9 – in Brazzaville.

Ghana (three World Cup appearances) and Egypt (two appearances) are considered the top favourites to slug it out for a place at Russia 2018. Congo and Uganda - both yet to make a World Cup appearance - will hope to be dark horses.
