Nigeria striker Uche Ikpeazu has been named in Uganda squad for the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying double-header against South Sudan later this month.

The 25-year-old Heart striker was born in England but qualifies for Uganda through his mother but is also eligible for three-time Africa Champions through his dad.

However, Uganda coach Johnny McKinstry has moved to cap the Nigerian descent as the face South Sudan at home in Kampala on Saturday, March 28, and then travel to the Omdurman-El Hilal Stadium in Khartoum for the reverse three days later.

East African nations are currently top of Group B in the qualifiers, with the finals scheduled to take place in Cameroon in 2021.
