UGANDA Cranes coach Laszlo Csaba has what it takes to neutralise the aggressive Sudan in the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup here today.

Csaba will compliment the traditional 4-4-2 with a 4-3-3 system to tame the Sudanese who pose a big threat to Cranes title quest.

“I know Sudan play 4-4-2 but where need be I will switch to 4-3-3. I have good players for both formations.

“Players have proved to me that they have mastered the new system. I hope they will maintain it in a match situation. The boys are in high spirits and serious. I would like to win all games,” an upbeat Csaba said after yesterday’s morning training session.

Team captain Hannington Kalyesubula and his St. George teammate Geoffrey Sserunkuuma (right) impressed Csaba in their first training session yesterday.
Csaba declined to release his line-up, saying it was still too early.

Sserunkuuma and Hassan Mubiru are most likely to lead Uganda’s attack with wingers Dan Wagaluka (right) and Alimansi Kadogo (left) feeding them.

FUFA president Lawrence Mulindwa relieved the team of unfamiliar Ethiopian food when he jetted in with a sack of maize flour, much to the delight of the Cranes camp.

Uganda should have an edge over a jet-lagged Sudanese side that was due to arrive in Addis Ababa last night. Sudan missed their flight on Friday.

The match, to be played under floodlights, will be preceded by the Somalia-Rwanda encounter.

Djibouti battled Malawi in group A’s second match of the tournament while Burundi and zambia faced off in the first match in group B. Hosts Ethiopia suffered a 2-1 defeat by Tanzania Saturday in the first game.
