Desabre: We need to finish the AFCON qualifiers on a strong note

14 Mar 2019, 15:35

Uganda Cranes head coach Sebastien Desabre has declared that the last Africa Cup of Nations qualification match will 'do or die' meet.

Desabre addressed the media during the official press conference at the Star-Times Stadium, Lugogo in Kampala on the third day of the team’s non-residential training.

We need to finish the AFCON 2019 qualification on a strong note and finish very well in Tanzania. We are going for maximum points. It is a good opportunity to play in Tanzania. Tanzania will be under pressure, the stadium will be full.

We have two targets at the same time. AFCON last group qualifier and the CHAN 2020 Preparation. We have so far trained for three days.

On Saturday, we have a trial match against Kampala Select. After Saturday, the team will travel to Ismaily in Egypt for training camp. I thank the Federation led by Eng. Moses Magogo for the training camp opportunity where the players will gel together as I continue to monitor them.

This is also early preparations for the Uganda Cranes team well ahead of AFCON 2019 tournament.  This will also be a moment for me to assess new players on the team with Christzom Ntambi, Shaban Muhammed, Robert Odongkara and others. We plan a friendly match against a league one club next Wednesday in Egypt’-
Desabre said.

They were joined by the Vipers players Moses Waiswa, Tadeo Lwanga, Halid Lwali, a and Dan Sserunkuma as well as Express’ Michael Birungi as well as Bright Anukani of Proline.

Mbarara City’s Ivan Eyam did not train with the rest of the players because he traveled for the club’s home Star Times Uganda Premier League engagement against newly promoted Ndejje University at Kakyeka Stadium, Mbarara.

After the Uganda Cranes play a test match against Kampala regional select, a pool of 9 players will be selected to join the 15 foreign-based legion in Egypt for the training camp.
