The draws for the biennial tournament were held in Algeria, the hosts nation on Saturday.

The team was pooled in Group B alongside Dr Congo, Cote D’Ivoire and Senegal.

Coach Sredojevic aka Micho in his reaction to the draw indicated this was a fair draw and hopes Uganda to perform well.

“We can say this is a fair draw for Uganda. Before the groups were made, we prayed not to be put in groups with three teams, avoiding hosts Algeria and then Morocco,” he started before adding, ” this doesn’t mean that team that Senegal, Dr Congo and Ivory Coast are any weak. We have to get the best of preparations before the tournament starts.”

“It is important that the League back home has started and we shall have time shortly before Christmas when the first round is finished. That will give us ample time to start preparations early enough.”

This is the sixth successive time that Uganda Cranes will be playing at the final tournament having featured in the 2011, 2014, 2016, 2018 and 2020 editions.  FUFA
