Uganda Cranes head coach, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has promised an attack minded game in the return leg of the Championship of African Nations (CHAN) match against Tanzania at Nakivubo stadium on the 4th July 2015.
“We shall attack from the first whistle because the best form of defence is by attack” Micho said.
During the first leg which Uganda won 3-0 courtesy of Erisa Ssekisambu (2) and a late Farouk Miya penalty, Micho used four natural strikers on the side where he handed a debut to goal keeper, James Alitho.
