Uganda coach Milutin Sredojevic says his side is ready for their Africa Cup of Nations battle with Ghana.

The Cranes will mark their return to the AFCON for the first time since 1978 when they face the Black Stars in their Group D opener in Port-Gentil this evening.

The East Africans are seen as the underdogs of their group, which also includes seven-time champions Egypt and West African powerhouses Mali.

This status seemed to be confirmed by a 3-0 loss to reigning AFCON champions Ivory Coast in their final pre-tournament friendly last week.

Yet ‘Micho’ reckons Uganda are capable of competing with the “big boys” and hopes to see his team continue their improvement.

“I can tell you that seeing all this football and results, we have strong belief that we can play this football and squeeze out results,” the Serbian is quoted by the Daily Monitor.

“We are on the same table with big boys of African football and we know they are planning for us but we are ready for the battle.” (mtnfootball.com)
