AFCON 2017 Draws – Libreville, Gabon

Barely a week to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations draws, Uganda Cranes coach Milutin Sredejovic expects a tough group.

Micho, who will be attending the draws told the media in Kampala on Wednesday that all the finalists are equal to the task.

There is no easy group. All the countries in the different pots are good.

Therefore, that business of easy group will not exist

Uganda was pooled in Pot 4 alongside Togo, Zimbabwe and Guinea Bissau.
