The FUFA technical committee Chairman Mujib Kasule has said the eight games the Cranes have played in the last three months are enough for the team as they head to the 2014 Africa Nations Championships.

 

He said the Cranes have got enough playing practice in their legs ahead of the tournament.

 

Kasule, the Vice President in-charge of the League, said going to South Africa a week earlier as requested by the technical team was not viable financially and technically.

 

The Cranes, who open their campaign against Burkina Faso on January 12, also have Zimbabwe and Morocco in their group. On Monday the Head Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic said they had missed a chance to face Bafana Bafana in a build-up game which would have taken place today in Johannesburg.

 

In the last three months the Cranes played two games against Egypt, four during the Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup and recently against Rwanda and Mauritania. Senior player Hassan Wasswa Mawanda, who returned from Vietnam recently after a failed move, will be the most experienced player on the squad.

 

The Cranes will be eager to better their performance at the 2011 event in Khartoum, Sudan by making it out of the group. During the last CHAN event in Khartoum, the Cranes lost 2-0, 1-0 and 2-1 to Algeria, Sudan and Gabon respectively.
