Uganda coach Sebastien Dasper said that facing Egypt in the African Nations Cup is a strong challenge for his country.
"We will start the games against a tough team like the Congo, and playing against Egypt at home is good for the team and a strong challenge," Daspar said in his comments to Yalla Koura after the draw at the foot of the Giza pyramids.
"Uganda has already won Egypt in the World Cup qualifying rounds and we lost in the game back in Egypt."
"The raffle brought us back to Egypt in the African nations, but it's a coincidence and we can not do anything. The last time we lost with a clean goal, so things were very close."
The Egyptian team is in Group A, which will play at the Cairo Stadium, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
