Cosafa U20: We are in Zambia to compete, Says Uganda Hippos star

06 Dec, 09:56

Uganda Hippos youngster, Pius Obuya, has warned opponents that the team is in Zambia to compete for this year’s Cosafa Under-20 title and not just participate.

The Hippos start their campaign on Wednesday against holders and hosts Zambia at the Arthur Davies Stadium in Kitwe. 

Obuya believes that the East Africans have what it takes to upset the big boys including the pre-tournament favourites - Zambia. 

- We thank Fufa for honouring the invitation and giving us this precious chance. Our main target is to win the trophy; not just participating. The coaches have assembled a very strong squad capable of winning games, Obuya said. 

The Maroons FC youngster is among the players who featured for Uganda U17 when they lost to Zambia in a 2015 U-17 Africa Championship qualifier.
