The Ocean stars of Somalia will clash with Cranes of Uganda who won their Group A opener 2-1 against Burundi.
The stars’ players that are mostly composed of players from European and America clubs are set to upset the host team in order to secure a chance to the next round.
Speaking ahead of their match against the horn of the African nation, the Ugandan coach, Johnny McKinstry has said his side should not underrate Somalia.
“I just want to warn people and my players Somalia have greatly improved in recent years and they have a very strong squad, so it will be wrong to underrate them. They are a strong force and deserve total respect. McKinstry said.
The Northern Ireland citizen said that the Somalia team has strong European based players who cannot be underestimated by the cranes.
“They have in their squad some foreign players who play in Europe and even Canada, and we cannot underrate them. We must be ready to face them and will stick to our style of play.”
Somalia is in group A alongside Eritrea, Uganda, Djibouti, and Burundi, while group B is comprised of Tanzania, Sudan, Kenya, and Zanzibar.
