Uganda Cranes head coach Abdallah Mubiru has warned his side against being complacent as they head into the return leg of their African Championship preliminary round qualifier against Somalia.
Uganda will play host to the horn of Africa nation at the Star Times Stadium, Lugogo.
The Cranes picked up a 3-1 win in Djibouti last week to stamp their authority on the game.
However, Mubiru likened the situation to the David vs Goliath story, stressing that in football nothing is guaranteed until the 90 minutes expire.
“It is in such situations that what seems impossible tends to happen. I have told my players to remember the David vs Goliath story because in football nothing is guaranteed till the 90 mins lapse,” Mubiru told Watchdog.
“Yes we hold such a huge advantage over Somalia but we have to keep our focus and feet on the ground and then think about whats to follow after this game.”
But Mubiru said that he trusts his players and believes with the experience they hold in the team, the fans should expect a good showing from the team.
“We are focussed on giving the fans a better performance. Because football is a game that should be enjoyed”. He added.
The Cranes will miss the services of captain Timothy Awany who completed his move to FC Ashadod in Israel. Vice Captain Taddeo Lwanga will also be missed.
Defender Mustafa Mujjuzi and midfielder Muzamir Mutyaba have been confirmed as the Captain and vice respectively.
