The pair has been a dependable pillar is Cranes’ two consecutive AFCON campaigns however this on-going campaign, Wasswa opted out to create space for upcoming players whom he encourages to work hard if given opportunities. He made 76 appearance for the Uganda Cranes playing at two AFCON finals 2017 and 2019.
