Less than 24 hours before Uganda enters the African Nations Championships (CHAN) fray, head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has called for unity within the squad for success.
The Serbian asserts that even though they have had thorough preparations for the Algerian edition, it’s togetherness and unity that will do the magic.
“I believe that we have worked on the team unity so that we’re mentally strong,” said the tactician ahead of the team’s opener with the Democratic Republic of Congo on Saturday in Annaba.
“We have to use this opportunity as a perfect platform where individuals present themselves in the best possible way, representing the country, but only as a team.”
The Cranes will be featuring in their sixth successive CHAN finals, but the previous five attempts have been dismal, as the team failed to go past the group stages.
Micho, however, feels the team, starting with Saturday’s encounter, is ready to go particularly starting with the DRC test.
“I believe that we have prepared very well and we are theoretically and practically aware of the sources of vulnerability of the opponent.”
“We have worked very well on tactical aspects where we have to react in a certain way depending on the situation.”
Cranes skipper at the CHAN finals, Milton Karisa has reiterated the team’s readiness to give everything and compete favorably.
“We are prepared well and everyone is ready to give everything they can tomorrow,” he said.
“Tomorrow’s match is not an easy one. We’ll respect them (DRC) but won’t fear them, because our team is good enough,” the pacy winger added.
Micho and his captain will be hoping for maximum points if there are any chances for the country to break the duck and make the knockout stages for the first time.
