Uganda Cranes forward Allan Okello believes that Tanzania will give Uganda a run for their money when they face off.

The two sides will lock horns in the semi-final clash against of the ongoing Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup at StarTimes Stadium Lugogo on Tuesday.

“Tanzania is not an easy team, we have been watching them because they play very good football and, I know it will be tough for both teams,” Okello said after Uganda’s 4-1 win against Djibouti.

“We always play each other, whether it is in Afcon qualification home and away, and it is never easy for us against them, most players from Tanzania also play in the Ugandan league and so we know each other very well, it will be a tough game,” he added.

Uganda topped Group A with 12 points after winning all their four games in the group while Tanzania finished second in group B.

Before Uganda’s encounter, the first semifinal match will see Kenya battling off against Eritrea at 13:30 EAT.

The winners in both games will face off in the final while the losers will lock horns in the play-off to determine who finishes third on Thursday December 19th.
