Uganda cranes will face off with Ghana black stars in a do or die 2018 world cup qualifier game at Uganda’s football cathedral Namboole on Saturday 7th October.
Albania based midfielder Tonny Mawejje strongly believes that Uganda can be among the 32 nations to compete in Russia next year,
“We can qualify for the world cup finals in Russia next year in case we win our two remaining games in the group and results in the Egypt side go our way. Uganda is blessed with football talents and to me it’s not a surprise that we are have a great chance to make it to Russia.”
“We need to win our home game with Ghana on Saturday and our game to Congo Brazzaville to increase our chances of qualifying. We have been playing some of these teams in various Afcon qualifying campaigns and so we know about them.
The world cup is everyone’s dream and so the game on Saturday is a big one for us.”
Mawejje also believes unity will be a major factor in the game against Ghana,
“I call upon for unity from fans, players and the federation as we have been doing over the years. I also promise the fans that i will do my best to help my country win on Saturday,” he concluded.
Mawejje who plays his professional football with Albania second division side KF Tirana, is set to replace suspended Khalid Aucho on Saturday.
Uganda is 2nd in group E, with two points below leaders Egypt and needs to win the remaining games to make it to the global football competition in Russia next year.
