Uganda has a Fotball team!
Movie Ranking: / five
The manager of the Uganda National Football Team, Micho Sredojevic, believes his team will make it to AFCON this time around.
Uganda has not played in the main AFCON tournament in the last 37 years. The last time that they had featured was in 1978. Their performance in that tournament was first class as they had reached the final, only to lose to Ghana though.
The qualifying draw for the next AFCON got released yesterday. There are 13 groups out of which Uganda’s group is Group D. The other teams in that group are Comoros Islands, Burkina Faso and Botswana.
If Uganda has to qualify from that group, they will have to end right at the no. 1 position which is hard considering a team like Burkina Faso is already there.
Sredojevic also admitted in his press conference after the release of the draw that most of the people would be backing Burkina Faso to win the group, but, he said his boys would compete fiercely and would leave no stone unturned to move to the tournament proper. (more…)

Micho Sredojevic is not happy that he has been named coach by a top division team in Sudan while he is contracted to Uganda Federation.
The talks of Sredojevic returning to Sudan had been going on for quite a bit of time in the media, but, the Serb always denied them.
But, all of a sudden, there was an announcement made on a social networking site yesterday by Al Hilal that they had grabbed Sredojevic’s services.
Not only did that surprise the Uganda fans, it stunned Sredojevic as well.
According to Sredojevic, if he ever has to quit his job at Uganda, he would do that in dignified fashion.
Clarifying himself on that Al Hilal announcement, Sredojevic said, “There are ways to do things. You have to act professionally and respect other parties. There is no chance that I would leave my current post without talking to the people who appointed me. It’s also my responsibility to inform the media if I take any such step.”
“I can assure you that I have not signed for any club from any country. I am still the head coach of Uganda and I hope to hold my position for the whole period of my contract.” (more…)
