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 told URN 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.

“We know this away match means so much for us if we are to remain in contention to make it to the quarter finals,” added Mutebi.

The Azam Uganda League champions who also beat Paidha Black Angels FC 2-0 to win the Uganda Cup on Thursday are very confident that they can get a good result in Nigeria.

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.

Skipper Denis Okot said that the players are looking at this game as a final because it means a lot for them if they hope to advance. “We have been winning games at home and now need to get some points away from home,” added the skipper.

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. “I am very hungry to score goals that will see KCCA Fc get to the final of the Confederations Cup,” said Sserunkuma.

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 Unite
