Mayanja, well aware that Uganda’s only victory in West Africa remains 2011’s 1-0 win in Guinea Bissau – refuses to buy into that talk that the Cranes cannot pick three points in Monrovia on March 24 as they resume the road to Brazil 2014.

“Football has now changed,” the former Cranes striker told, adding, “You can win a football game at and home and away.

“The truth is I don’t know much about Liberia. First I have never played against them and stars like George Weah are not part of the team. Just like us, they (Liberia) are a new team now. We are on equal footing.


“Today there is no hiding place in football. You just have to prepare well tactically and psychologically and if those are ticked, plus some bit of luck, you can win away from home.”

Uganda trail Senegal in second place with two points, with the Lions of Teranga topping Group J with four. Angola also have two points while Liberia are on one.

The Crane’s last trip to Liberia ended in a 2-0 defeat during the 2000 Afcon qualifiers, the first leg in Kampala having ended 1-0 in favour of the hosts.
