Hassan Wasswa Upbeat About Qualification

WasswaUganda midfelder  Hassan Wasswa Mawanda is confident the Cranes will get the desired result against Morocco in their final Group B to qualify for the quarter-final of the CHAN tournament. 

The Cranes need just a draw with Morocco to progress as group leaders, a result which will leave the Northern Africans praying Zimbabwe falter against Burkina Faso.

Uganda has higher chances of qualifying to quarter finals as group leaders compared to Morocco,” he says.

“I wonder why people write Uganda off. I don’t think we’re leading this group by mistake. If Morocco is good enough they would have been at the top of the group by now.” Wasswa added: “But again this has made us work even more to silence those who doubt us that we don’t have the potential. People must know that we didn’t come here for a tour,” he told local media.

Vice-captain Wasswa has no doubts about their qualification but defended his side’s lame performance in the second game against Zimbabwe.

“What happened on Thursday is very normal in football. We played really well in the first game and created numerous chances from which we should have scored more than the two goals we got, against Zimbabwe it was really tight.
