Zim coach roots for Uganda

Immediately after exiting the tournament, Zimbabwe stand-in coach is tipping Ugandan Cranes to defend the title.

Norman Mapeza said he would put his money on the defending champions to retain their title. But he also warned against writing off Rwanda.

Asked which team he thinks will win the tournament, he said, “I’d put my money on Uganda, they’re organized but also don’t rule out Rwanda because they’re playing very well.”
