Ahead of their quarter final tie in the Total Energies CAF U-20 championships, head coach Jackson Mayanja has warned that Uganda have nothing to do fear from them.
“It’s a new month and we hope we can enter the new month and go to the quarter-finals,” Mayanja said.
“We’re very prepared as a team and this is the most important time for my team to make sure we achieve our goal and all the players are in good condition they’re very fine.
“I have always said it and I will say it again here. What I want to achieve with this team is to qualify for the World Cup.”
The former El Masry midfield maestro was more concerned about his team than Thursday’s opponent.
“I don’t need to know so much about Nigeria even if you go out and look around every player but football is about what you think in the tactical part of it so we’re trying to put ourselves in a very good tactical position,” he said.
“Nigeria is a good team. It’s going to be a very hard game but I think like I said, the achievement we need is tomorrow, that’s what we want to achieve.
“I don’t want to talk about Nigeria. The game is to be played on the pitch tomorrow.”
