The Head Coach of Seychelles team, Gavin Jeanne has warned that hosts Uganda that they should not feel too confident when they play this afternoon in the return leg of the 2015 Africa U-17 Championship qualifier.
He told URN that his team has the capacity to shock the hosts in their own background. The Uganda Cubs carry a 2-1 advantage after winning the first leg tie two weeks ago.
But Jeanne has said after studying Uganda’s format of play and picking out who the dangerous players are, they know how they will handle the hosts on Saturday. Because of the on-going renovation going on at the Nakivubo Stadium, the game has been moved to the Philip Omondi Stadium, Lugogo.
However, the hosts have also promised to make good use of their home advantage as the look forward to qualify for the next round to face Rwanda. Coach Mathias Lule said on Friday that they have prepared well and called upon the fans to come and support the team.
Team captain, a student in the US, Andrew Okiring will need a late fitness test, while striker Imran Mpaata who sprained his ankle and Luwalo Kippa are all out injured. Strikers Pius Obuya and Charles Ssebutinde who scored Uganda Cubs goals in the first leg are expected to make the team. The Seychelles key players Paul Dylan, Farncourt Colyn and Japhet Bijoux are all part of the team.
