Johnathan McKinstry admits Uganda Cranes final Group C match will be tough but remains optimistic.

Uganda must beat the Atlas Lions to stand a chance of playing in the last eight of the Chan 2020 after drawing goalless with Rwanda and losing 2-1 to Togo.

Morocco beat Togo 1-0 in their first game but were held to a goalless stalemate with Rwanda which leaves them needing at least a point off Cranes to continue their journey of title defence.

“We can beat Morocco by correcting our mistakes,” Uganda Cranes Coach Johnathan McKinstry said.

“We will certainly have opportunities, the game will be open, and we can hurt them.”

Morocco coach Houcine Ammouta has vested his hopes in striker Ayoub El Kaabi, top scorer in 2018 who is yet to score in the tournament.

“He’s an important player for us. He might be off form, but I have no doubt that he can make the difference in big games,” the Moroccan coach said.

Probable Line-up

Charles Lukwago (GK), Denis Iguma, Aziz Kayondo, Halid Lwaliwa ©, Mustafa Mujuzi, Shafik Kagimu, Said Kyeyune, Bright Anukani, Brian Aheebwa, Ibrahim Orit and Joachim Ojera.
