He said that although some teams are much stronger than others, Uganda played quality football. The Cranes, who returned home on Wednesday beat Burkina Faso 2-1, drew goalless with Zimbabwe before falling 3-1 to Morocco in Group B.
As the Cranes travel back home, two last Group games of the tournament take place today with Mauritania facing Gabon, while CECAFA representatives Burundi have a chance to qualify for the quarters when they battle DR Congo.
The Cranes fell 3-1 to the Atlas Lions of Morocco on Monday night in their last Group B tie at the Cape Town Stadium, a result that saw them fall out at the group stage of the event. The team needed at least a draw against the Moroccans to make it to the quarter finals after beating Burkina Faso 2-1 in their opening game on January 12 and settling for a goalless draw against Zimbabwe four days later.
Hosts South Africa last night exited the on-going Africa Nations Championship after suffering an embarrassing 3-1 defeat to the Super Eagles of Nigeria. The Uganda Cranes will now face either Nigeria or Mali at the quarter final stage on Saturday if they manage to go past the unpredictable Atlas Lions of Morocco later today.
He told URN in an interview this morning in South Africa that adjusting the tournament to include a few players from other Leagues around Africa will make the championship more competitive and attractive to fans.

Milutin â€˜Michoâ€™ Sredojevic, the Cranes Head Coach has revealed that they will comfortably take care of Burkina Fasoâ€™s physical approach when they face off tomorrow in a Group B tie of the 2014 Africa Nations Championship.
