Cranes seek vital away points in Monrovia



Uganda Cranes have vowed to go all out when they face Liberia in a Group J tie of the 2014 World Cup qualifier at Samuel Kayan Doe Sports Complex on Sunday.

With two points and second in the group behind Senegal, Coach Bobby Williamson’s side needs to be at their best to try and get points away from home which have proved hard for them over the years.

“We have always struggled to win games away from home, but we are now focused and going all out to win,” skipper Andrew Mwesigwa said.

The likes of Emmanuel Okwi and Geoffrey Massa must make sure they get the goals to give the regional Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup Champions a win.

With South African based goalkeeper back to form after being out injured last month, the team is expected to count on him together with the defence of Mwesigwa, Geoffrey Walusimbi and US based Henry Kalungi.

The match is also very important for bottom placed Liberia who will be hungry to get maximum points to add on their one point.

Their care-taker Coach Frank Jericho Nagbe has been working with 12 professionals and some local based players to prepare for the battle.

Striker Anthony Laffor, Dion Williams and Francis Forkey Doe, who were expelled and recently pardoned by the Liberia FA, are expected to be a handful for the Cranes team which has been unfortunate to have most of their players not enjoying first team football in their respective teams.

The likes of dribbler Sekou Jabateh Oliseh and strikers Zah Rahan Krangar and Patrick Wleh are expected to get starting roles in Nagbe’s team.
