“Our focus now has turned to the crucial fixtures against the Tanzanian national team in thirteen days,” Micho told ChimpSport on Monday evening.

“It’s nice to have most of my players in training and I’m sure we are ready for the task of qualifying Uganda for the second time for the tournament,” he assured.

The team will train twice daily, that commenced Monday morning at the training pitch of the Mandela National Stadium in Namboole.

“I know Tanzania has improved a lot over the years and they are not an easy team to beat in their own backyard. But anything is possible in football and belief is one of the key points,” Micho said when asked about the challenge ahead.

After Monday’s training sessions, only URA players back from the CECAFA Kagame Club Cup and three Vipers players (Ismail Watenga, Musa Malunda and Robert Kimuli) were missing with the team set to enter residential training on Friday.

Taifa Stars under Danish coach Kim Poulsen has lately made their home turf a good hunting ground for wins where they have beaten the likes of Cameroon and Morocco among the giant sides.
