As the host nation of the 2019 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup, Uganda played impressively on the way to the final match. They lead Group A at the preliminary round with four winnings.

After that, they beat Tanzania in the semi-final game thanks to the only goal scored by Fahad Bayo. With current players who have a good form in the squad, Uganda may dream about the 15th title.
