Uganda coach looks to good result against Ghana

Uganda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic on Sunday expected a good result ahead of their 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) qualifier against Ghana.

“We know Ghana is fresh from the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil, but we shall prepare well for them,” Sredojevic said.

The team has left Uganda for camping in Niamey, Niger before heading for Kumasi, Ghana for the the Group E clash on Sept. 5.

Uganda is also expected to face Niger on Sept. 2 in Niamey in an international friendly that the two teams will use to prepare ahead of the Afcon qualifiers. Niger will face Cape Verde in the qualifiers.

However, Sredojevic’s team traveled without playmaker Brian Majwega who has a muscle strain.


The coach added that he has traveled with 14 players, while the five professional players from abroad will join the team in Niger.

Striker Brian Umony said although Ghana is a big team in African football, they will not over respect them.

“We are capable of getting a good result in Ghana and we shall work hard to achieve that,” said Umony who has played professional football in South Africa, the United States, Vietnam and Tanzania.
