The final group stage matches of teams in Group C at the Total CHAN Finals 2020 in Cameroon will decide their early departure or further stay in the competition.

Having completed their opening two rounds of action, the stage is set for a grand finale. No team is guaranteed of qualification yet heading into the final bend of the group stage from this group.

Head Coach Johnathan McKinstry and goalkeeper Charles Lukwago have addressed the media during the pre-match press conference about the fixture against Morocco.

Saidi Kyeyune put on a great show and scored a brilliant goal against Togo

McKinsytry and Lukwago have said the belief amongst players is still top notch with all eyes on the game on Tuesday at Stade de la Reunification- Douala.

Uganda Cranes Coach-Johnathan McKinstry

We are into the last 48 hours before we play Morocco. We are looking to create that cup final mentality. We need to go out and play the game. There is no next game at the moment. This is a cup final. We shall have a couple of new things because Morocco bring different challenges. We have asked the players to put in more effort, work rate and intelligence like they did in the second half against Togo. We have told them there is no Quarterfinal for the team until they play and get a result on Tuesday. We want to write a story for ourselves, the country and everyone back home. The odds are against us but we believe it is possible.

McKinstry told media that his boys have quality to cause Morocco problems. We need a 90 minute performance. However we need to be alert as Morocco can easily catch us on counter attack.

Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Charles Lukwago

We are positive and our targets set at the beginning of this campaign are still alive. We shall remain competitive as we head into the final game against Morocco. I know the challenge ahead but it all goes down to a positive mentality from my teammates when we walk on to the pitch. We want to create a great atmosphere tomorrow.
