Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho' Sredojevic has said mind games by the Guinea FA ahead of the crucial 2015 Afcon qualifier on Wednesday will not derail them.
The Guinea FA working with the Moroccan security on Tuesday temporarily denied the Uganda Cranes team access to the Mohammed V Stadium which will host the game.  It is mandatory by the Confederation of African Football (CAF) rules that a visiting team trains at the Stadium that will host the game at the same time the game will be played a day before.
But the Guinea FA assisted by their FA President who is also a CAF 2nd Vice President, Almamy Kabele Camara kept the Ugandan team outside the Stadium for over an hour. The players and officials even disembarked from their buses when the security was driving them to a different training venue.
//Cue in: "We are cool..
Cue out:..the limits."//
Edgar Watson, FA's Chief Executive Officer managed to get access to the Stadium, but still failed to convince the adamant Camara and his officials.
After eventually getting access to the ground, the Cranes who need a draw to qualify for the 2015 Afcon finally trained for an hour. The players were happy that the playing surface feels great.
Sredojevic told URN that despite the mind games by the Guinea FA, his team will remain focused and determined to make Ugandans proud come Wednesday. While the team was blocked form accessing the Stadium for some time, over 11 fans were also blocked from leaving the Casablanca International Airport because of visa issues.
