Preview: Last Roll of Dice For Micho
Uganda Cranes face off with Tanzania in their second Group F meeting of the AFCON qualifiers.
The encounter at Benjamin Mkapa National Stadium in Dar Es Salam comes four days after the Taifa Stars beat Uganda Cranes 1-0 in Ismailia.
Then, Simon Msuva’s 68th minute proved the difference as Tanzania moved second to four points while Uganda Cranes remained rooted at the bottom with just a point.
A defeat to the Cranes will end their AFCON qualification dream with two games to spare!
There is growing believe that this might be coach Milutin Micho Sredojovich’s last game as Cranes coach, spiced up by FUFA’s announcement to have a press conference on Thursday about National Teams.
With his job on the line, and Cranes qualification chances hanging on the thread, the conservative Micho may come out of his shell to attack the Taifa Stars.
And he will do it without Gavin Kizito and Steven Sserwadda who are ruled out with injuries.
“One detail can take you to hell and the other can take you to heaven and that is what happened in the last match,” Micho reflected on the game in Ismailia.
“We now have chance for redemption in this game and we are coming here to fight for maximum points.
“I have full trust in the players and they know how crucial this game is and are hoping for positive results.”
Forward Steven Mukwala, Midfielder Bobosi Byaruhanga and Centre back Timothy Awany who notably missed the reverse fixture, are expected to play a part.
Algeria have already qualified out of this group and the race to take the top remaining slot is amongst the three teams Uganda, Niger and Tanzania.
