The game means a lot to the cranes as they are back in contention with only one point behind. Angola comes to Kampala in what will be a thorny match and a hostile territory with the home fans expected to truck to the 45 thousand capacity filled stadium to cheer their beloved Cranes. The much anticipated match it’s a mêlée that will prove if Micho was right choice for Cranes in small time.


Uganda will be looking to prevail under the much heralded Serbian Coach Milutin “Micho” Sredojevi?, and he will be out to add on the hope of Uganda’s qualification to world cup which has always been seen as night mere.

Win against Liberia was the only game that kept all the hopes of Uganda to qualify but in any failure to win against Angola, energy for Liberia game would have been lost for nothing no matter how the results will be from Liberia vs Senegal game.


Uganda is enjoying an unbeaten running home record since 2005, when they lost to South Africa, through a Benni McCarthy’s penalty spot kick. Mandela Namboole stadium has been a fortress for the Cranes, but it comes alive this weekend, can Angola spoil the party…? However making the record hasn’t helped cranes to qualify and this brings thought that may be when the cranes will lose at home may qualify for any major tournament since it can act as a wake-up call for the team to pick more points away from home.

Losing is part of football, but former AC Milan striker and World Footballer of the Year George Weah could not take that when his Lone Stars of Liberia fell 1-0 to hosts Uganda in a 2014 World Cup qualifier in Kampala on Saturday.

After the final whistle, Weah followed the referee from Chad, Adam Cordier, as he walked to the changing rooms and tried to attack him, only to be stopped by security. Weah, who was the leader of delegation of the Liberia contingent, was reportedly not amused by the level of officiating.

Two other Liberian players, including defender Alanadine Omega, had earlier, after the final whistle, also tried to confront the referee in the centre of the pitch, but security officers stooped them.


Early in the week after training with the Lone Stars, Weah had promised that his team was in Kampala to grab all the three points.

In 1999 when the Lone Stars visited Uganda for an Africa Cup of Nations qualifier, they also lost 1-0, with Philip Ssozi scoring the goal.
