We want the maximum points against Cote d’Ivoire,” he said.The coach, who has coached in Ivory Coast before, said his local knowledge will come useful in the Monday clash. “I know the league in Cote d’Ivoire because I was there for two years. I know some of the players. We didn’t qualify for the quarter finals because of some weaknesses but I will ask my players to continue playing good football.”Uganda Cranes will play in their final group B match against Ivory Coast, having lost 3-1 to Zambia and 1-0 to Nambia to fall out of the running for a place in the knockout stage.“The game against Cote D’Ivoire is not a friendly match. We are demanding the same positive energy from the players like in the earlier two games at CHAN 2018 as we finish up the group games on Monday,” he told his players after training.STARTING LINE UP 19-Watenga Isma (GK), 14-Nicholas Wadada, 8-Madoi Aggrey, 5-Mujuzi, 4- Muwanga (Capt), 21-Taddeo, 23-Milton Karisa, 3-Muleme Isaac, 11-Derrick Nsibambi, 15-Sadam Juma,17-KyambaddeSTANDINGSZambia 2 2 0 0 5 1 6 – qualifiedNamibia 2 2 0 0 2 0 6 – qualifiedUganda 2 0 0 2 1 4 0Ivory Coast 2 0 0 2 0 3 0#TotalCHAN2018 Tweets Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more
