Our football match prediction:
Uganda will be aiming to cement second position in Group E with a win over Congo at Stade Alphonse Massamba-Debat. The Cranes have been struggling in front of goal in recent qualifying games and it has to be noted that they scored only one goal in previous four matches in all competitions. Anyhow, seeing that Congo have been totally out of form of late, we are tempted to put our money on the visitors. The Red Devils experienced all sorts of problems at the back in their last home game against Ghana (1-5) and that is yet another reason why away win should be considered. When the two sides met at Mandela National Stadium in Kampala earlier in the process Uganda recorded a hard-fought 1-0 win over Congo and we predict that the visitors will have yet another reason for celebration on Sunday evening.
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 Africa 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.
