Football | Cecafa Kagame Cup

Bobby full of praise for S. Sudan



Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson believes South Sudan have been unlucky in the games they have lost in the Cecafa Tusker Cup in Kampala.

The Bright Stars, Fifa’s newest members, come face to face with the Cranes on Friday in Group A’s last game playing for pride having already been bundled out of the competition.

But the Scot reckons coach Zoran Djordjevic’s side have exhibited some of the best football and will not be pushovers.

“South Sudan are not a bad team,” said the Scot, “It is a new team and are very comfortable on the ball and can pass the ball well. They have only been unfortunate with things like defensive lapses.”

Bobby added: “I don’t expect a cricket score. If we get it I will be delighted. But I respect South Sudan. What people don’t realize but I do is they really work very hard.”

Djordjevic has been happy with his boy’s performances despite losses to Ethiopia and Kenya.

“This team is for the future and I can say with all confidence that we will go places as long as the players remain consistent and committed like they showed in our first two matches,” Djordjevic told supersport.com.

The Cranes have already qualified for the quarterfinals and Bobby has hinted at giving untested players a chance to play on Friday, albeit, maintaining he will be respectful to South Sudan.

“A number of players that have not played at this level yet will get an opportunity,” said Bobby, adding, “We’ll see how they are before the game and then see if they are capable.”

The Scot added: “I believe they do. Hopefully the fans will be patient with them and encourage them.”
