KCCA FC 31 Man contingency to travel to Congo
Uganda's KCCA FC has made their way to Congo Brazzaville as the Uganda Cup champions buildup to the CAF Confederations Cup playoff away to Otoho d'Oyo on Sunday, January 13 rapidly approaches.
The contingent that departed to Congo on Friday, January 11 morning comprised of 18 players, eight technical team members and five officials.
However, the players did not travel with the squad include Jackson Nunda who was left out following a hip injury sustained during KCCA FC’s 1-0 win over URA in the StarTimes Uganda Premier League on Tuesday afternoon.
Nunda has reportedly been a key component for the Kasasiros, top scoring in the 2018 CAF Champions League for Mike Mutebi’s side.
However, with an array of talent on display readily available in the midfield department, Mike Mutebi has more than capable replacements for the talented playmaker.
KCCA FC need to overcome Otoho after two legs in order to reach the group stages where they last featured in 2017.
The other Uganda CAF Confederations Cup representative, Vipers SC host Tunisian giants-CS Sfaxien on Saturday, January 12 in the first leg of their play-off.
