Uganda Cranes Coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has said he trusts his squad will do well during the 2014 Africa Nations Championship.

 

The Coach said the squad of 23 players that he selected early this week has worked hard and they will make the country proud.

 

In an interview with MTNFootball.com, the Serb said he believes his players have what it takes to get results at the tournament in South Africa.

 

“We still have few days to polish up, but those selected know what is expected of them and they will hold the national flag high,” explained the Coach.

 

Micho said although some of the players will be making their debuts in a big tournament, the likes of Hassan Wasswa Mawanda and goalkeeper Benjamin Ochan who have featured in South African teams before will carry the team.

 

Uganda is pooled alongside Zimbabwe, Morocco and Burkina Faso. Although Micho has said Morocco will be the most difficult team because of the vast exposure of their players, he added that they must also be very cautious against the other two teams in the group.

 

“Our mission is to first make it through the Group stage then we start planning for the knock out stage,” he added.

 

In the 2011 event held in Khartoum, Sudan, the Cranes failed to make it out of the Group stage.
