Uganda Cranes Vs Lesotho
This game against Lesotho is an important one for qualification for Uganda Cranes to the Africa Cup of Nations. The team is in good spirits. I have spoken to players and they understand the importance of this game. We have improved upon the level of confidence for the players. The three points will be crucial for the home fans and country as well. It is important to play good football as well. I am happy with the camp. We are ready. The win against Lesotho will be important to give confidence to the team in the ten months I have been in charge. We shall give 200 percent to the team. I urge the fans to support the team like they did against Tanzania. We need to qualify for AFCON as a unit.
