Uganda Cranes assistant coach Abdallah Mubiru insists there will be no lack of concern when the group takes on Sudan in the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The Cranes have South Sudan at St. Mary’s arena, Kitende on November 12 preceding a return leg in four days in Nairobi with the expect to pick all points and consolidate top spot.

South Sudan has singled out a few Ugandan conceived players and Mubiru selects previous Vipers and KCCA forward Tito Okello as one of the dangers.

[su_quote”]We can’t underrate our opponents because they have good players as well for example Tito Okello, He is talented and if we allow him space, he can create the moments and hurt us because he carries that threat [/su_quote]

[su_quote”]We are not a group that works under pressure. There is no pressure but of course, there is urgency because we want to win, therefore we shouldn’t allow complacency to creep in anyway. [/su_quote]

[su_quote cite=”Abdallah Mubiru”]Eventually, it will go down to what we do as a team. We should be able to execute our plan very well. How we attack, how we react if we don’t have the ball and how we defend will be important for us.[/su_quote]

Uganda bests the group that has Burkina Faso and Malawi alongside South Sudan with four points from two games.

Maximum points off South Sudan in the back to back encounters will all but seal Cranes qualification for Cameroon 2021.
