Uganda Hippos vs Tanzania- Al Hilal Stadium – 7pm (Uganda) 6pm (Sudan)

Uganda Hippos will begin their journey to defend the AFCON U20 Zonal qualification title against rivals Tanzania on Saturday evening at Al Hilal Stadium.

The Hippos will be aiming at nothing but beginning on a bright note against their rivals Tanzania.

Since arriving in Sudan on Wednesday, Uganda has conducted three training sessions including the last one with all players eager to prove their worth.

Interim head coach Jackson Mayanja believes the team has prepared well and victory will be on Uganda’s side.

“We have had nice preparations and we want to win our first game against Tanzania,” he started before adding,

“The boys have responded well to training and I have also used my experience as well as my technical staff to tell the boys what they should do. It’s a big game and we expect to win.” He added.

Team skipper Isma Mugulusi is optimistic his experience at this level will be key.

“My teammates are ready and fit for Tanzania. We have adopted to the conditions here and we know it’s not easy but we shall fight together and with my experience here I will work extra hard to ensure we return to the AFCON U20.”

After the clash with Tanzania from group B, the Hippos will rest for six days before playing their second group game against Ethiopia on 5th November at Al Hilal Stadium.

The leader from group A will face runners up from group B and vice versa.
