Micho tips Nigeria, Zimbabwe for CHAN final

Uganda Cranes coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic has tipped Nigeria and Zimbabwe to overcome their opponents in today’s 2014 Africa Nations Championship semifinal ties.

Micho’s team bowed out in the group stage after beating Burkina Faso, drawing with Zimbabwe and falling to Morocco.

Speaking from Kampala ahead of the semifinal clashes, Micho told MTNFootball.com that although Ghana have showed good fighting spirit, the Super Eagles are on a high and will win the game.

“After their unbelievable comeback from three goals down against Morocco in the quarterfinal, the Nigerian team has fired on all cylinders and are playing more as a unit. They are the highest scoring team in the tournament and are playing well,” said Micho.

The Serb said although Zimbabwe did not start well in the tournament, they have conceded only one goal and have relied on a tight defence.

“They defend in numbers and attack in numbers as well. I think their formation will outdo Libya’s 4-4-2 formation,” reasoned the coach.

To reach the semis, Nigeria battled to eject Morocco 4-3, while Ghana defeated DR Congo 1-0.

Micho, who has coached in Uganda, Rwanda, Ethiopia, Sudan and South African, pointed out that he is enjoying the level of football at the tournament.

“I think the level of competition this time is more explosive than in the last two editions of the tournament,” he concluded.

    Nigeria has scored 12 and conceded 8. Ghana has conceded just one goal so far. Nigeria has porous defense. If Ghana does not waste the chances that are sure to come their way, they will top Nigeria and advance to the final game.
