Uganda national team coach Sebastien Desabre has warned his players to stay grounded following the 2-0 victory over DRC on Saturday in their first Afcon Group A match.
Uganda’s goals came courtesy of strikes by Patrick Kaddu and Emmanuel Okwi in either half to give the East African side their first win at the tournament since 1978.
Uganda faces Zimbabwe on Wednesday, 26 June at 7 PM Central Africa Time. Speaking after the win over DRC, Desabre said:
We have to work harder because there are two big games ahead, Zimbabwe and Egypt. We have our plans.
We know that you need a minimum of four points to reach the next round. We only have three points now, and the players know that.
We will take a rest, train tomorrow (Sunday). To claim a point against Zimbabwe and against Egypt won’t be easy and then the three points we have already. The opponents are not easy sides.
