Nairobi - Gor Mahia and former Uganda Cranes head coach Bobby Williamson has predicted a tough CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.
The tourney kicks off Wednesday in Nairobi where Ugandans will be looking to defend their title, with stiff competition expected from the likes of Kenya and Zambia.
Williamson believes that the Ugandans are still favourites for the win but says that with Kenya being at home and Ethiopia's rise in continental football, anything can be expected.
" It will be tight from start to finish. There are some very good teams in the competition, he said.
" I think Uganda are still favourites because they have an experienced side and know how to win in such situations. They will however be run close by Kenya and Ethiopia.
" Expect a very good competition, he added.
The tourney kicks off Wednesday with the main match seeing Kenya take on Ethiopia at the Nyayo Stadium.
