Onyango aware of Congo task
Uganda Cranes goalkeeper Denis Onyango understands the task that awaits them in the must-win 2013 Nations Cup eliminator against Congo Brazzaville on Saturday.
Work is cut out for the Cranes if they are to make the final round in the road to South Africa next year.
They must overturn the 3-1 deficit by scoring two goals without reply when the two line up against each other at Namboole on Saturday.
But that the Cranes have not kept a clean sheet in their last three games, including a 2-1 friendly defeat to Egypt, and have scored only four goals in the said matches causes some concern.
Although the Cranes remain unbeaten at Namboole since 2005, the last time they scored two goals was the 2-0 victory over Guinea Bissau last year, which was followed by a goalless draw with Kenya and one-all stalemate with Senegal last week.
“I know it’s very difficult for us especially that we have conceded in the last three (four) games,” Onyango told SuperSport.com after Thursday’s training at Namboole.
“And we are working on it, we are working on the defence…we can’t afford to concede in the next game and we are looking for goals. So we need to be careful at the back and forward.”
Onyango added: “It’s a very huge task for us to get the goals and win without conceding but I think we can do it as a team.”
