The Uganda Cranes national team is confident of scoring three points, in a match against Harambee Stars on Thursday evening at St Mary’s Kitende Stadium in Kampala.
Cranes against the coaching Serbian coach Milutin Sredijovic Mitcho, will be left with a chance to advance to the third and final round, qualifying for next year’s World Cup finals in Qatar.
Coach Mitcho has allayed his youngsters’ fears of pressure from the match, which kicks off at 10 p.m.
“We are looking forward to a highly professional match from our highly motivated brothers to secure the right to be proud in the East African derby.
We will not focus too much on winning, but we will look for ways to win.
