Our prediction for this Africa Cup of Nations 2021 match:
Mandela National Stadium will host Sunday’s football game between Uganda and Malawi. Johnny McKinstry’s troops managed to keep a clean sheet in each of their previous four games in all competitions, and they are likely to rely on their rock-solid defence against Malawi. The Cranes, who kicked off their 2021 Africa Cup of Nations campaign with a goalless draw against Uganda, are tough to beat at home, and we are positive that they are going to grab something from the clash.
Malawi, on the other hand, recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over South Sudan in their opener. Since there have been under 2.5 goals in each of their previous five games in all competitions, we believe that fans will see a low-scoring match at Mandela National Stadium. You should bear in mind that the two teams played out a goalless draw in a friendly last year.
Highlighted Team (Uganda):
Uganda are an African football team that have yet to qualify for the FIFA World Cup finals. The Cranes struggle in the World Cup qualifiers, but they did well to make it to the Africa Cup of Nations finals in 1978.
Uganda outplayed Nigeria in the semi-finals of the tournament in Ghana, but the hosts proved to be a big catch for Peter Okee’s troops in the title game. You should bear in mind that the Uganda national football team made their first appearances at the African Cup of Nations back in 1962. The Cranes wear yellow shirts and black shorts when playing at home, while the colour of their away kit is white and black.
Uganda play their home games at Mandela National Stadium, the venue that was opened in 1997. The capacity of the stadium is 45,202. The likes of Almansi Kadogo, David Obua, Ibrahim Sekagya, Joel Kitamirike and Joseph Kizito are the most notable footballers who played for Uganda.
