Cranes of Uganda assistant coach Mathias Lule has stated that the team is excited at the prospect of playing the star studded Super Eagles but they are not particular about any individual player in the team.
The Cranes of Uganda in their last fixture against Nigeria were one nil winners at the nest of champions in Uyo and Lule is confident that the same feat can be repeated. “It is possible we beat Nigeria again. We are not here to pass time, we have a mission and that’s why we are here. We respect Nigeria and they are one of the best teams in Africa.
The Super Eagles will parade some of the biggest and brightest football players on the African continent but the Ugandan assistant coach insists that they remain focused and are not in Nigeria for fun. “We are playing the Eagles and not the individual, and we are also playing as Uganda and not as individuals so we are going to face the Eagles and not any individual player.”
The Cranes booked a back to back African Cup of Nations appearance for the first time since 1978.
