Uganda Cranes head coach Sébastien Desabre has said his team is well prepared and ready for their opening Group B match against Zambia at the 2018 Total Africa Nations Championship (CHAN).
The two sides will clash at the Marrakech Stadium at 10.30pm Ugandan time in what promises to be a thriller.
Ahead of the tournament which kicks off, Desbare’s team camped in Rabat where they played two international friendly matches.

According to the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Shs 19 billion (US$5,450,000) will be at stake. The winning team will pocket Shs 4.5 billion while the runner up takes Shs 2.5 billion.
