The Pre-Competition Medical Assessment (PCMA) came as a FIFA directive following the tragic death of Cameroonian player Marc-Vivien Foe, who collapsed and died on the field during the 2003 FIFA Confederations Cup game against Colombia at Lyon’s Stade de Gerland in France.

Uganda will first travel to Tunisia for training and then head to UAE where they will play Slovakia and Ivory Coast in Abu Dhabi on January 11.
