Steven Mukwala joins three other tax collectors in the Cranes Camp.

URA FC striker Steven Mukwala has joined the Uganda Cranes camp after a late call up by interim coach Abdallah Mubiru.

The summoned squad of 34 players is preparing for an international friendly match against South Africa’s Bafana Bafana slated for 10th June 2021 in South Africa.

Mukwala now joins three other tax collectors in the Cranes camp including his club captain Shafik Kagimu, Patrick Mbowa and Ivan Sserubiri to bring the number to four.

URA’s number nine has so far had 20 goal involvements in 24 league appearances this season. Second, on the top scorers’ chart with only two goals less, Mukwala has scored 14 goals and assisted up to six times.

The striker has already surpassed his last season’s tally where he scored 13 goals in 21 games hence finishing as the league’s top scorer of the 2019/20 season. The season was abandoned after 25 games due to the emergence of the Covid19 pandemic.

The 21-year-old joins Mubiru’s outfit hugely dominated by young players mostly featuring in the domestic league, while others make their debut appearances on the National team.
