2023 U-20 AFCON: We’re  Fired Up For Flying Eagles  Clash — Uganda Captain Mugulusi

Uganda captain, Isma Mugulusi says the team is battle ready for their quarter-final clash against the Flying Eagles of Nigeria.

The Hippos will face the Flying Eagles at the Suez Canal Stadium, Ismailia on Thursday night.

A place at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup is also up for grabs.

“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.

“We are told and we have been assisted by the coaches and other players who visited our camp like former Cranes goalkeeper and captain Dennis Onyango and former Hippos captain Gavin Kizito to eat the grass so I think tomorrow we will eat the grass.

“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.”

The Flying Eagles finished second in Group A after losing their opening fixture against Senegal.

“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.”

  • Normally, this isn’t a match to fret about but this Bosso’s team doesn’t inspire onfidence. No strikers. All 3 goals scored so far were by defenders. Plus Uganda is always a tough customer at whatever level. I wish Nigeria well though.
