The Al Masry SC team has arrived in Uganda ahead of their first leg CAF Total Confederations Cup tie against KCCA FC on Saturday.

The team placed third in the Egyptian Premier league is handed by Hossam Hassan, Egypt's legend who won the CAF Champions League twice and the Africa Cup of Nations three times.

“We want to get a good result in Kampala which will give us a better advantage when we play the return leg at home,” said Hassan at the Entebbe International Airport after the team arrived aboard an Egyptian Airways flight.

The coach said that although they are aware KCCA FC are the strongest team in Uganda, they are ready to play a very tactical game and get the results. Star players Ahmed Shoukry and Ahmed Gomaa who scored in the team's recent 2-0 win over ENPPI SC in Egypt also traveled with the contingent.

The Ugandan team was ejected by South Africa's Mamelodi Sundowns on a 3-2 goal aggregate in the CAF Total Champions League before they moved to the lower Confederations Cup.

But KCCA FC coach, Mike Mutebi has said that they will not over respect the Egyptian team. “We know their blend of football which is a high passing approach, but we know where to get them,” he added.

The second leg of the game will be played 85 km away in Ismailia between April 14-16.
