Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has outlined the plans he has laid out for the national team ahead of the up coming friendly matches, CHAN 2016, AFCON 2017 and FIFA World CUP 2018 qualifiers.

Micho was addressing the media at the press conference held on Wednesday, 9th September 2015 at the FUFA head quarters in Mengo, Kampala.


The press conference comes in the wake of the Cranes return from Comoros where Tonny Mawejje’s 22nd minute goal won the game for the visitors to cement top place of group D ahead of the double header clash with Burkina Faso in March 2016.

I first of all thank Government for the financial support, I thank FUFA, the players, fans and the media for the encouragement. The match against Comoros is now past, we are focusing on the future. We can only use it to reflect as lessons on how to improve on the overall team stand.

Micho stressed the need for proper planning through player man – management, partnership management, department management and team management.

He has also hinted on the need to widen on the pool of players available for selection as a means of having several options for at least 4 players per department.

We plan to have friendly matches on the internationally recognized FIFA days. We look towards sharping the locally based players through the Cranes Na-Mutima campaigns.

Stressing the need for planning, Micho stated ‘The next game is most important’

Uganda turns focus to the CHAN 2016 double header qualification matches against Sudan next month before the 2018 similar arrangement for the World Cup 2018 qualification against Togo.

Uganda shall host Sudan on 17t October 2015 in the first leg of the CHAN 2016 qualifiers.

The return leg will take place away on 24th October 2015.
