Uganda coach concedes difficult qualification

Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic admits his team has an almost impossible task to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations as they come up against a fired-up Ghana next month.

The Cranes have a ‘mountain’ to climb after losing last month’s double header against Togo.

The two poor results leaves Uganda third in Group E with just four points and facing a real prospect of not making next year’s finals.

They now have to beat Ghana at home in next month’s clash and avoid defeat against Guinea in their final game to probably seal automatic qualification.

But the Cranes will be coming up against a Black Stars side which appears to be returning to full confidence following a hard fought 3-1 win over Guinea in the last round.

Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic concedes his team have put themselves in a very difficult position but remains upbeat of their prospects.

“Yes, the hill has now become a mountain making it very difficult but I trust my boys,” he said.

“Playing against Ghana is like a bicycle racing in formula one. But with the appropriate techniques, we shall qualify.

“Ghana is a huge football country with thousands of talent but our target is to qualify.

“The task was becoming less and less difficult after we got a point in Ghana and beat Guinea, but Togo has made it very difficult now.”
