Uganda Cranes Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has praised youngster Junior Yunus Sentamu for the two wonderful goals scored against Burkina Faso on Sunday night.

 

Micho told URN that he was very proud of the 19-year old striker who was on the plane for the first time and scored two nice goals in his first outing for the team in an International event.

The Coach told URN after the 2-1 victory in the on-going 2014 Africa nations Championship tie in Cape Town, South Africa, that the young man is the future of Ugandan football.

 

Micho adds that although many people thought he had picked Youngster Yunus Sentamu so early for international action, he has always had faith in him and disproved critics. Micho however stressed that  Sentamu needs to use the opportunity as a starting point to benefit himself and the national team.

 Cue out….proud of him.”//

 

Speaking about the defensive lapse in the second half that almost brought the Burkinabese into the game after scoring their goal, Micho said they have to go back to the drawing board because they allowed the opponents space to kick the ball around. He praised the maturity of Hassan Wasswa Mawanda who stood firm against the Burkina Faso players in the midfield and the general team work of the team.

 

But while Micho and the rest of the team were celebrating, Zimbabwe Coach Ian Gorowa has warned that they will come all out against Uganda in the next game on January 16. He said although they started with a barren draw against Morocco, they have no alternative but go out for a win against Uganda if they hope to qualify for the next stage.

 

Gorowa said although he respects Uganda as a team, he watched their style of play and knows what to expect against them.
