Uganda Cranes attacking Midfielder Farouk Miya is positive and confident as the side prepare to take on hosts Egypt in the final group A game on Sunday.

The two side are facing off tomorrow at exactly 4pm at Cairo international stadium to see who top group A.

“We have finished our last training and everyone is in good condition and I hope we ara going to take tomorrow’s game as any other game we have played,” Miya said on Saturday.

“We are fortunate that we have reached on this stage. This give us power and motivation. We are brave and we are going to get a win to qualify to knock out stage.”

It should be remembered that Miya has been in scintillating form in AFCON – He provided the two assists that saw Uganda beat DR Congo in their group opener.

Egypt have already qualified to the knockout stage after accumulating six points but the Cranes will need at least a draw to seal second place. Sebastien Desabre’s charges can afford to lose and go through provided Zimbabwe also fail to beat DR Congo in the other group A game.
