The African champions, Zambia, can progress with a 2-1 loss or a draw of any kind when the two clash at Namboole.

“I have been talking with them (strikers),” Mayanja told, “And we always talk and continue talking.”

The strikers in contention for a place in the squad to face the African champions include Geoffrey Massa, Brian Umony, Robert Ssentongo, Hamis ‘Diego’ Kiiza and Emma Okwi.

Mayanja was magical with the ball on his feet and played across the midfield as well as led the line on his own and operated behind a lone striker during his time. So when he speaks, his wise counsel cannot be taken lightly.

“You see the coach can do everything within your power – to teach you the positioning, the technique, the movement,” added Mayanja, who also doubles as assistant to coach Bobby Williamson.

“But the last person to execute action is you, your eyes and your awareness. The rest is down to you the striker or any other player while on the pitch. It’s how you use your focus, your calmness, quick thinking and deciding how to put that ball at the back of the net.”

“As a player, it you make the last decision, those few seconds you have in the box, that final touch, you have got to have it at the back of your mind. But key is remaining calm amidst all the pressure.”

Uganda last qualified for the Africa Cup of Nations in 1978, then losing the final 2-0 to hosts Ghana.
