The Libya Football Federation (LFF) has requested an international friendly match against Uganda Cranes in Kampala ahead of their crucial 2014 World Cup qualifier against Cameroon.
Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, the Cranes head coach, revealed to MTNFootball.com that the Libyans are very eager to have that build-up in Kampala.
“We need to make sure we are have finalised all logistical issues and also got clearance from the FA to have this game. I cannot say the game is confirmed at the moment,” said Micho.
The two teams are planning to use the friendly to prepare for their up-coming 2014 World Cup qualifying games next month.
Uganda face a tough test against Senegal in a must win encounter, while Libya also need an outright win away to Group I leaders Cameroon.
“This game would be very good for our team, especially the home based players who are also part of the team that will participate in the 2014 CHAN competition,” explained Micho.
In May, Libya humbled Uganda in an international friendly in Libya in Micho’s first match in-charge of the Cranes.
But the Serbian-born coach has now won four major games against Liberia, Angola and two against Tanzania in the 2014 CHAN qualifier, while he has lost twice against Libya and 3-0 against Egypt last week.
