Professional star Geoffrey Massa has said facing Madagascar in the second round of the preliminaries of the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifier will be no threat.
The Uganda Cranes striker who plays for South African side University of Pretoria says that he is very happy with the draw which was conducted by CAF in Cairo, Egypt, Sunday.
“Facing the likes of Madagascar will be a good start for us because I personally don’t see any threat from them,” said Massa.
Coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic’s team will have to negotiate their way in the first leg to be played in Antananarivo between May 16-18 before taking advantage of the home ground in the return leg.
“Yes I know football is unpredictable, but we shall go past Madagascar,” said a confident Massa.
However, he sounded worried when he was told that if Uganda qualifies for the group stage then they will play alongside Ghana, Togo and Guinea.
“That is a very tough group of only West African teams. But we simply need to win all our home games and go force some draws away,” he added.
