Uganda defender, Denis Iguma, has reiterated the need for self belief ahead of their 2018 FIFA World Cup qualifier against the Black Stars of Ghana on Friday, October 7, 2016.
The Cranes of Uganda, after having secured a place at the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations due to be held in Gabon, are now focused on the task of making it to Russia 2018, while being in the same group with some of Africa’s heavyweights, namely Egypt, Ghana and Congo for the World Cup qualifiers.
In an interview with FIFA.com, the Lebanon-based defender who plays for Al-Ahed Sport Club said: “Our national motto is; ‘For God and My Country’. Football is easy when you believe in yourself. If you do that, you can achieve your objectives.”
Believing that the Cranes need to stay grounded, however, he added: “There are no small teams in football. The other sides in our group are strong and they have some quality players who play in Europe.
“Most of our side play in Africa, with only a few based in Europe. We give our all for our country though.”
The Cranes have left Kampala to Lome where they will play the Hawks of Togo in an international friendly on Tuesday.
