KCCA FC team has traveled to Port Hacourt, Nigeria for a Group A match of the Total Confederations Cup against Rivers United FC.
The Azam Uganda Premier League champions KCCA FC team has this morning traveled to Port Hacourt, Nigeria for a Group A match of the Total Confederations Cup against Rivers United FC.
Head coach Mike Hillary Mutebi said that his team is going for real battle because they need to get positive results on Tuesday.
The team traveled on an Ethiopian Airlines flight through Addis Ababa before they connect to Lagos and later take a local flight to Port Hacourt.
In their last game KCCA FC beat Rivers United FC 2-1 at their Philip Omondi Stadium in Kampala.
The win pushed them to second in the group behind Morocco's FUS Rabat. Mutebi said that his boys are well motivated to get a good result in Nigeria.
KCCA FC will look to their leading 34-year striker Geoffrey Sserunkuma and Derrick Nsibambi who have been in scoring form lately. The duo netted in the Uganda Cup final played in Arua District.
Mutebi's team started the group with a 3-0 away loss to FUS Rabat before they stopped Club Africian 2-1 and following it up with a similar win over Rivers United.
While KCCA FC are motivated going into the match, their opponents lost their last League game 1-0 to Lobi Stars FC on Friday to remain in a miserable 15th place.
