Uganda defender Wasswa: We’re not afraid of Egypt
Uganda defender Hassan Wasswa has downplayed Egypt’s ability saying they aren’t afraid of them before the match on Saturday.
Wasswa has talked to the press saying that the Egyptian team aren’t as fierce as they were in the previous years. He said: “We watched them (Egypt) draw against Mali and they don’t look threatening like the previous Egypt teams.
“If we can replicate the way we performed against Ghana in the second half from the start, we have the ability to get a decent result against them.”
Egypt have missed the last three editions of the AFCON after managing to win the tournament a record breaking three times in ’06, ’08 and ’10.
Wasswa has talked about the Egyptians’ ability saying: “We have no big names in our team like they do but for us; it’s team work and we shall use that to our strength like we have always done.”
It’s worth noting that the Pharaohs are set to face Uganda this Saturday at Stade de Port Gentil and will be looking to earn the three points before the final group match against Ghana.
