He was speaking to after training when Bobby made the pointer. “If it (qualification) happens,” he said, “It would be fantastic.

“It would be the biggest success of my career and of all these players’ I would imagine.”

Bobby’s managerial successes include winning the Scottish Cup in 1997 with Kilmarnock and three Cecafa titles with the Cranes.

As the Cranes head into next weekend’s crucial affair, in which they need to win by a two-goal margin to be sure of qualifying for the finals in South Africa, Bobby is aware Uganda last qualified for the Nations Cup in 1978.

The Scot is also aware that this qualifier is happening in a week the hosts are marking 50 years of independence from Britain, thus its significance cannot be underestimated.

“It’s been a long time since we’ve qualified for this tournament,” he said, adding, “It’s been a long time since Uganda gained its independence.

“Hopefully it all comes together (independence celebrations and qualification) at the same time, it would be fantastic. It will be a great week for all Ugandans if we can manage to do that.”
