Uganda Expect Tough Libya Test

try geneva;”>And no one is better qualified at the moment to know the job at hand than the man of the moment; the new Cranes coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic.

“Libya will be tough,” Micho told ahead of the trip to Tripoli on Wednesday, adding, “It will be tough. No doubt.

“They have been camping in Italy; they are taking this friendly and their World Cup campaign very seriously. And they are not ranked 65th by Fifa for nothing.” Uganda are ranked 91st.

The 43-year-old added: “Some people may think we are going there as tourists but it will be tough and our players know that.”

Micho will be looking to open his Cranes account on a winning note but his first competitive test comes on June 8 when Uganda play Liberia in the 2014 World Cup qualifier, the team they lost to 2-0 in the previous outing, at Namboole.

Uganda, currently bottom on two points, trail their World Cup qualifying group leaders, Senegal, by three with as many games played.
