Ahead of Uganda Cranes’ international friendly with Zimbabwe, the visitors’ coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic is worried of just one aspect – the Botswana spies.
Speaking to Kawowo Sports ahead of the match that will be played on astro turf of Rufaro stadium, the Serbian tactician with a rich vein of knowledge on African football politics and playing format noted; “Yes, I know they (Botswana officials) are here to see how Uganda team plays with Zimbabwe. Micho has, however, cautioned the players to play aware there is a do-or-die match on Saturday. Fine, we need this result against Zimbabwe but we shall play with caution to avoid injuries. There are some players in Kampala on standby. Even goalkeeper Jamal Salim is on standby. Uganda Cranes trained on the Rufaro astro turf on Monday evening ahead of Tuesday's game. 17 players trained with Tonny Mawejje and goalie Dennis Onyango expected hours before the game. [kawowo.com]
