Cranes ready for anyone
Uganda Cranes coach Bobby Williamson says his side will be ready for any team the draw throws at him.
The Cranes await the draws for the final round pairings of the 2013 Nations Cup qualifiers in the first week of July to know who they will face on the road to South Africa.
This after they dispatched Congo Brazzaville 4-0 (5-3 aggregate) on Saturday to book a place among the 30 teams that qualified for the final qualification round.
“I don’t control draws so I don’t care who we play,” said Bobby, whose side relished in Andy Mwesigwa, Godfrey Walusimbi, Geoffrey Massa and Emmanuel Okwi goals to overturn a 3-1 deficit.
“This is just one step before the most important game, thanks to the team work and players following instructions. At this stage you will play whoever is drawn with you.”
Reigning African champions Zambia, four-time winners Ghana, 1992 winners Ivory Coast, Mali and Tunisia, who won the title in 2004, are some of the likely opponents for the Cranes when the draws are conducted at Caf headquarters in Egypt.
The Indomitable Lions of Cameroon, four-time victors, Angola, Nigeria, Gabon, Sudan, Algeria, Equatorial Guinea (or Gabon), Guinea and Burkina Faso are also possibilities.
Whoever Uganda are paired against, they will play home and away in September and October with the winners qualifying for the tournament in South Africa next year.
