The Algeria-Uganda match, on behalf of the first day of the CAN-2023 qualifiers, is fast approaching. The Greens want to start the adventure on a good note, before flying to Dar Es-Salem four days later to challenge Tanzania.
The Ugandans landed in Algiers this afternoon from Tunisia, where they completed a blocked internship, to play the match against Algeria. It was around 3 p.m. that they landed at Houari Boumediene airport. They received a warm welcome from some representatives of the Algerian football federation.
Accompanied by the Algerian media at the airport, Ugandan coach Milutin Sredojevic agreed to give them a statement. He talks about the important game on Saturday. “Algeria is a football country. The Algerian national team is not to be presented. It has already won the African Cup in 2019 and the Arab Cup in 2021. It has an excellent group, mixed between experience and talent, under the control of a very good trainer like Djamel Belmadi”. He will say straight away.
It must be said that the Serbian technician praised the national team by declaring: “The Algerian national team plays nice football. She would have deserved to qualify for the next World Cup. And to add: “It is a great football nation that we respect a lot, but we will try to carry out a good operation on Saturday. Despite the difficulty of the mission, we are determined to take up the challenge”.
The Greens are refining their preparation
