Time is now for Uganda

Emmanuel Okwi says The Cranes are ready to rumble

Uganda Cranes fans believe that this time round Uganda has come nearer in qualifying for the world’s biggest football tournament as the team has always been eliminated in the early stages.

This time round, according to the fans, Uganda only needs to beat the Senegalese and then waits for one more opponent before they book tickets for Brazil 2014.

A lot of hope for the fans is in the Serbian coach Micho Sredjovic after seeing him torment Angola and Liberia here at Namboole.

Ugandans’ hope that the suspension of Senegal’s big guns including Newcastle’s Papiss Cisse and Chelsea’s Demba Ba turns out to be a big blessing to the Ugandan national team.

The fans therefore pray that luck is on their side as they play one of the footballing giants on the continent who would be missing their stars in tonight’s game.

The fans hope that the cranes with the likes of Denis Onyango, Godfrey Walusimbi, Andy Mwesigwa, Martin Mutumba, Tony Mawejje and Emma Okwi will torment the lions of Teranga who will be having the likes of West Ham’s Mohamed Diame, Fernerbahce’s Mousa Sow and Dame Ndoye among other big names in the team.

Fans also believe that this time round God will console them after slightly missing out on many occasions to the African Nation’s Cup and the most recent and notable ones being when Uganda needed just a win against Kenya in Namboole but settled for a goalless draw – denying the team chance to feature in the continent’s biggest tournament.

The Cranes also came on the verge of qualifying for the African Nation’s Cup in the last campaign after losing 5-6 in penalty shootouts to the Zambians.

However , The Cranes team has to be more cautious of the Senegalese team who might use their height to make life for the Ugandan players hell on earth considering the damage their height caused during the first leg that ended in a one all draw at Namboole .

The Uganda Cranes fans have to keep to their knees, hope for luck and believe strongly in their teams as it battles the Lions of Teranga in another group J battle of Goliath decider.
