Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, the Cranes Head Coach has revealed that they will comfortably take care of Burkina Faso’s physical approach when they face off tomorrow in a Group B tie of the 2014 Africa Nations Championship.
The match takes place at the Athlone Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa, just after Morocco would have battled Zimbabwe in an earlier match.
The Coach told URN this afternoon in an interview that his boys are ready to prove a point. He said they will not over respect the Burkina Faso team, but go all out for three points.
The Serb said they will deal with the Stallions physical and tactical awareness.
//Cue in;… This is the team…
Cue out;…of physical fitness’//
The experience of Hassan Wasswa Mawanda and Richard Kassaga will be very vital in matching the physical aspect of the Stallions. Skipper Dennis Iguma also said he is rearing to go as he features in his second CHAN event after the 2011 Edition in Khartoum, Sudan. The SC Victoria University player said his teammates are determined to go out and die-a-little for Uganda.
The likes of Joseph Mpande, Brian Majwega and youthful Yunus Mugerwa are expected to lead the Cranes’ attack to cause some shocks for the Burkina Faso defence. “I know Burkina Faso reached the finals of the 2013 Afcon and they are one of the biggest exporters of football talent to Europe, but they will not find it easy against us.
The Stallions who lost 1-0 to Nigeria in the Afcon finals last year are however hungry to prove a point in this tournament. Although they qualified for the event for the first time after seeing off Togo, Coach Paul Put believes they have a chance to win the trophy.
But the Cranes defence will have to keep a close watch on the likes of Francis Kabore and Lare Mohammed Diarra. FUFA President, Mosos Magogo who arrived on Friday is also in Cape Town to watch the game together with Legal advisor, Alex Luganda.
