Uganda Cranes skipper Andrew Mwesigwa has said he still has what it takes to play at the highest level.

Mwesigwa told URN that since he can still play professional football, he will not hurry to retire from the national team and instead leave it to the national coach to decide.
 
After the Cranes failure to qualify for the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) Mwesigwa hinted that he could as well throw in the towel and retire. But he has now had a change of heart and decided he is still available for selection.
 
Mwesigwa was sent off on November 19th when Guinea beat Uganda Cranes 2-0 to qualify for the Afcon showpiece. However, the team's poor display and Mwesigwa's in particular did not go down well with football loving Ugandans. Some bitter fans even attacked Mwesigwa's house.
 
But the defender has insisted that he still thinks he has what it takes to deliver at the highest level. The former SC Villa defender said after playing for the national team for 11 years he still has what it takes to play for the national team because he is doing well at professional level.
 
He said any player in the world can make a mistake on the pitch and Ugandans should not think that the penalty he caused in the loss to Guinea was not intended. 
 
However, the coach Milutin ‘Micho' Sredojevic refused to comment before leaving for holiday in Serbia. He said this was not the moment to comment on who will make the team or not in the future.
