2013 Afcon qualifiers second leg
Uganda (0) Vs (1) Zambia
Saturday October 13th, 2012 – Namboole
Uganda Cranes defender Henry Kalungi has warned his team mates to play Zambia as a team and not single out individual players.
Speaking to the media after the morning training session on Wednesday, the US based central defender said; “We play and either win or lose as a
team. Therefore, we must concentrate on Zambia as a team and avoid singling out individual players”.
The soft spoken defender who plies his trade in United States of America went further to reveal that the team is optimistic of eliminating the African Champions insisting that the mistake that led to the goal they conceded in the first leg at Ndola has been iron out.
“I must confess that there was miscommunication in defence that led us to concede that goal in Ndola. However, eversince the team regrouped, we have been working on that and we hope it won’t happen on Saturday”, he said before adding, “If we put up a good performance that am sure we’re capable of, there is no doubt we’ll make it to South Africa”.
Kalungi who was the latest player to join camp on Tuesday is expected to maintain his slot in the team as Andrew Mwesigwa’s partner at the heart of defence. The Cranes are down by a goal going into the second leg and need to win by a margin of at least two goals to qualify for the Nations Cup for the first time since 1978.
