Uganda Cranes football team has continued making preparations for the forthcoming brawl against Tanzania. The two countries will be playing in the African Nations Championship (CHAN) Qualifiers.
As the first leg draws closer, Uganda is climaxing its preparations today to get ready for the big match. This means that Uganda is set to face Zanzibar Heroes in a practice match at Amaan Stadium.
Coach Milutin Sredojevic aka Micho had looked forward to a good challenge from Zanzibar. He also believes the game will play a big role in preparing the team for the match against Tanzania.
“We have come here to crosscheck where we are at present as Uganda prepares to face Tanzania in Dar es Salaam on Sunday and we expect to have a good match against a very competitive team,” he said.
He praised his counterpart Hemed Morocco who he believes has a hand in transforming football in Zanzibar.
“I respect my friend and coach Hemed Morocco also known as the Jose Mourinho of Zanzibar football who has helped a lot in shaping the game in this place. I can only wish him and football in Zanzibar all the best in future,” Micho added.
Following today’s friendly, the Uganda Cranes camp will travel to Tanzania mainland on Friday. This will then be followed by the game against Taifa Stars on Sunday.
The match will take place at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium for the first leg of the CHAN Qualifiers.
The return leg will be played on 3rd September at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende. The winner on aggregate will then qualify for the final tournament in Algeria.
