Ugandan born forward Dan Sserunkuma who plies his trade for Tusker Premier League (TPL) giants Gor Mahia recently stated that he is looking forward to switching nationalities and one day be available for selection for Harambee Stars of Kenya.
Not in the near future
His sentiments have not gone unnoticed in Uganda and in an interview with monitor.co.ug, the Ugandan national team coach Bobby Williamson said the striker has a chance of featuring for the team some time but not in the near future.
Bobby admitted to watching Sserunkuma in a past Gor Mahia game and liked his performance but said the upcoming CECACA competition would be too soon for the on form striker.
I won’t call up a player because he is wanted by another country; my understanding is if you are Ugandan you want to play for Uganda. I watched him play against Rangers last week, he has a strike partner and they have quite a partnership.
I have Brian Umony, I have Emma Okwi, Hamis Kiiza, and Robert Ssentongo
In the frame
It puts him in the (Cranes) frame but I don’t think he will be selected. As I said I need only four strikers. I’m not sure he will be involved but as I said, I will discuss it with the technical committee. We have young players playing in Uganda who are also pushing their chances. I can’t say he is not in the frame. He is Ugandan, Bobby said.
