Ahead of the highly anticipated Afcon U-20 quarter final clash between Uganda and Nigeria, Hippos skipper Isma Mugulusi wants to write history.
The winner of the tie will earn a world cup berth and all focus will be on winning the game.
“We are ready, everyone is in shape, we’re mentally good. We’ve tried to put what the coach wants in practice. I think we can overcome Nigeria in the quarter-finals,” the Makedonikos FC attacker said.
“In this team everyone is a captain. It’s not only me so it’s not something big though I am the one who wears the armband but everyone is a leader in our team.”
“Nigeria has been good but now we’re also good and we can compete,” Isma told journalists.
“If we manage to qualify for the quarter-finals that means we can also qualify to the semi-finals and go to the World Cup.
“Tomorrow is the day we will write history in Ugandan football.”
Mugulusi was part of the team that reached the finals two years ago but missed out on playing at the World Cup due to Covid19.
