Ugandan coach, Sebastien Desabre claims that he has a plan to stop Egyptian winger Mohamed Salah at the Africa Cup of Nations.
The Cranes of Uganda and the Pharaohs of Egypt lock horns on June 30 at the Cairo International Stadium.
The match against Egypt is preceded by games against DRC (June 22), and The Warriors of Zimbabwe (June 26).
Speaking to the media in his adopted country, the French tactician said:
I know the Egyptian team well, especially Mohamed Salah.
He is one of the players with wonderful individual skills and has the ability to be ranked among the best players in the world at the moment. We will have a plan to stop him in our match together.
Playing against Egypt is a very wonderful moment because it is the host country and the presence of the fans is great in their game.
They will place strong pressure on them, and we will try to snatch the points in the first two matches before the last match against them.
