AFTER being dumped out of the Africa Youth Championship by Egypt recently, the Uganda U-20 soccer team coach Frank ‘Video’ Anyau is planning to change strategy for the CECAFA youth championship starting in Asmara this weekend.

The flamboyant tactician, who loves attacking football, said yesterday that lack of caution and laxity among his players was the major reason for the 2-0 defeat in Cairo and the consequent 2-1 aggregate exit in the continental championship.

“We have learned never to give away the ball. And as a coach I have also learnt to take all players equally to keep pressure on them because we must win the championship,” Anyau explained.

Anyau’s change of mind comes after meetings with FUFA technical committee officials, who reportedly advised him on his team selection for the Eritrea tournament.

Anyau will stay with goalkeepers Godwin Buule and Ali Kimera but he has promised not to guarantee any of them first place.

It is the same opinion Anyau has over strikers Daniel Sserunkuuma, Sula Matovu, Crizestom Ntambi and Patrick Edema.

The team, that relocated from camp in Jinja to the Namboole hostel yesterday, leaves for Nairobi at 3pm today with a contingent of 19 players and six officials from where the contingent will connect to Asmara for the opening ceremony on Saturday.
