Kampala City Council Authority Football Club, the Azam Uganda premier league champions have for the first time topped group A of their Caf confederations cup competitions after registering a deserved win against fellow counterparts Rivers United Football club from Nigeria in an entertaining African face-off played at Phillip Omondi stadium, Lugogo this evening.
A brace from the Kasasiro boys striker Derrick Nsibambi in the 15th minute before Bolaji Sakin fired into the roof of the net 18 minutes later to equalize for Rivers and the 71st minute strike by Nsibambi helped Kcca secure the much needed win so as to leave their chances of a quarter final spot on course.
However, despite of registering the much needed win, Kcca custodian Mike Mutebi felt it wasn’t enough as he related to the much misused opportunities by his lads alleging that they should have won by a bigger margin.
“We should have got more goals because we created the chances, but now we return to the drawing board for the away game in Nigeria on June 20th,” he said.
His Nigerian counterpart Stanley Eguma has put the blame on his poor defense display that led them to be punished because of the reckless defenders.
“My boys tried to play a good game, but the early goal was our problem. We also didn’t defend well,” he said.
In the other group A match played before the Kcca-Rivers United encounter, Morocco’s FUS Rabat came from behind to beat visiting Club Africain of Tunisia 2-1 on Friday.
