Uganda: Locker - Would the Cranes Have Performed Well in the Nations Cup?

The just-concluded Nations Cup threw up several surprises and upsets, something which got junkies wondering what would have been had Uganda qualified

Mugalu: Had we qualified ahead of Zambia, I have a feeling we would have beaten Ethiopia comfortably, and draw the other two group matches against Nigeria and Burkina Faso. That would at least have been enough for the quarters.

Tash: And if we met Togo, we could also have beaten them..

Kakaire: Then we would also roll over that below-par Ghanaians who relied on dubious penalties throughout

Nsimbe: So you mean Uganda would at least have made the final? Stop dreaming guys...

Mulumba: Why not?

Eupal: And who knows? We could have upset Nigeria. Such is the luck in Nations Cup that any team can take the trophy.

Sebugwawo: I can't believe this rubbish and wishful thinking going around here...How can you stoop that low to expect Uganda at the Nations Cup when Mulindwa is still at the helm of Fufa?

Mugalu: Stick to the point Bugos and please stop smoking...

Sebugwawo: Point taken. My take is that we would have emulated Algeria and packed our bags before the final group game.

Tash: But that just conforms our predictions that the Nations Cup is some sort of a lottery coz Algeria is the second-ranked team on the continent

Sebugwawo: At least Algeria managed to get a point but I don't see our age cheaters excelling against the continent's best.

Kakaire: Whatever Fufa did to this ka-man is abominable coz he has never said anything positive

Sebugwawo: I'm just an honest person but I wonder why no one in Fufa or USL has approached me for consultations...s
