Desabre hopes Uganda Cranes will convert chances against Ivory Coast


Uganda Cranes’ coach Sebastien Desabre is hoping his men will convert the chances ahead of Monday’s CHAN 2018 encounter against Ivory Coast.

Uganda has not delivered as expected on the final touch and that’s the same worry Desabre has been harboring ahead of this crunch tie.

“Our target is now to finish third in the group,” the 41-year old told CAF’s official website.

“We want the maximum points against Cote d’Ivoire. I know the league in Cote d’Ivoire because I was there for two years. I know some of the players but I have to stay focus.

We didn’t qualify for the quarter finals because of some weaknesses but I will ask my players to continue playing good football.

I hope they can covert the chances that will come their way. It is important to stay third and I hope we can achieve that by beating Cote d’Ivoire, which is an equally good team.

Uganda lost to Namibia (1-0) and Zambia (3-1) to bow out of the competition just like Ivory Coast that lost to same opposition 1-0 and 2-0 respectively.
