Micho says Uganda’s good results “not by accident”

Uganda

Uganda’s national team coach, Micho has commented on his team’s results against Ghana in their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification tie.

Milutin Sredojevic has made it clear that the run of good results by Uganda is not an accident. Micho, as he is commonly called, recounted the Uganda Cranes last five competitive matches away from home.

“Five last competitive matches of Uganda away; win in Comoros 1-0, win in Togo 1-0, loss Burkina Faso 1-0 from penalty, win in Botswana 2-1, draw in Ghana 0-0. It can’t be accident.”

Uganda also held Ghana to an away draw in the 2015 AFCON qualifiers and Micho did not forget to mention that as well. “Three matches against Ghana. Two draws in Kumasi and Tamale, and a win in Kampala. It could not be an accident.”

Sredojevic was speaking to KingFut. He mentioned his respect for Egypt but added that his team is only focused on the coming match.

“We shall approach every match as it comes. We are playing, 12th November, in Kampala against Congo Brazzaville and we think only about them at present.”

Congo hosts Egypt in the other opening fixtures of group E’s 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifiers. Only the team that finishes top will qualify.

I have dedicated part of my time in this bad world to following African football. From CECAFA to WAFU, COSAFA to UNAF & even the forgotten UNIFFAC.

    Uganda might be better than we all think. It is too early to make any solid statements about this group. The Egypt win over Congo was not easy by any means. I think this group is more evenly matched than we initially anticipated.
