Desabre Sees Positive ahead of hectic CHAN period


Uganda Cranes head Coach Sebastien Desabre is impressed with the performance of his team.


Ahead of Sunday’s CHAN championship against Zambia, Cranes coach Sebastien Desabre is impressed with the performance of his team.  Last Saturday’s Cranes first warm-up match 1-1 draw against Guinea provided him an impressive attitude.

Nelson Senkatuka leveled matters after Camara Saidouba Bissiri had put Guinea in the game played at the FUS Stade Molay E Hassan Stadium in Rabat.

Our second half wasn’t the best in the opening 20 minutes but we changed the strategy and system to 4-4-2. From then on the game was so open to both sides. I liked the attitude, mentality and character of the team. This game has given me chance assess players further which allows me to make a choice on the squad and line up,” Desabre told in the post-match report.

The Cranes will now take on Congo Brazzaville in another friendly match on Tuesday from which the final squad of 23 players will be selected to travel to Morocco for the Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).

KCCA FC goalie Benjamin Ochan’s experience will be put to a test since Ismail Watenga is set to miss out the opening fixture against Zambia.

Nicholas Wadada, Isaac Muleme, Timothy Awanyi and skipper Bernard Muwang were in charge of the back four. Taddeo Lwanga, Moses Waiswa, Milton Karisa, Saddam Juma, Allan Kyambadde and Derrick Nsibambi are the other players who completed the starting line-up.

Uganda Cranes is in group B alongside Zambia, Cote D’Ivoire and Namibia.
