Uganda Cranes head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has called on the government to make the renovation of Mandela National Stadium, Namboole a priority, to be fit to host Algeria in June.

Uganda hosted and lost (1-0) matchday three of the AFCON qualifiers in Egypt against Tanzania, as the country lacked a facility fit enough for the assignment.

“It was very bad in Egypt because it’s not very easy to play from a neutral ground,” Micho said after Uganda avenged Tanzania on Tuesday.

Uganda is now tied on points (four) and goal difference with the Taifa Stars and will need to be on top of their game against Algeria and Niger if they’re to qualify.

“We have it in mind that Algeria won all their four matches, we’ve the same number of points and goal difference as Tanzania who have Niger to play here [Dar Es Salaam] as we host Algeria.”

“We pray that our government will succeed in refurbishing Namboole because it’s our spiritual home,” he said.

It’s a likely reality as the UPDF Engineering Brigade, who are the contractors, made it a point the stadium will be completed by June 2023.
