2017 AFCON

  • Uganda will prevail in Group D – Micho

    Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic believes it is possible for the Cranes to progress from Group D of the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations as they have been drawn to face giants Ghana, Egypt and Mali.

    According to Micho, with good preparation and support from the country’s government, they will be able to get some positive results from Group D.

    “Impossible is nothing. Possible is everything. We shall measure our values, test our character against good teams. We have a realistic chance to get good results and pass the group,” Micho said.

    He added: “This is a tough and competitive group but I believe in the players and the team. I believe in the management of Fufa administration. I call upon the Government to give us support.

    “The fans who have given us the immense and unconditional support whenever the Uganda Cranes play will be following the action after missing out in the last three finals.

    “Egypt will come like wounded lions, while Ghana want to prove a point after missing in final to Cote D’Ivoire”.

    Uganda Cranes will play Ghana on January 17, face Egypt on January 21 in Port Gentil before playing Mali in the last group game on the January 25, 2017 in Oyem.
