Confederations Cup : KCCA storms Port Harcourt for Rivers United clash

By Monica Iheakam

Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) FC of Uganda yesterday stormed Port Harcourt, Nigeria ahead of their Group A match of the Confederations Cup against Rivers United FC on Tuesday.
KCCA, currently second in the group, led by a member of FUFA executive member, Hamid Juma arrived from Entebbe aboard Ethiopian Airlines.
Armed with their 2-1 victory of Rivers United at the Philip Omondi Satdium in Kampala on June 3, the Ugandan Premier League Champions are confident of snatching another win from their hosts at the Yakubu Gowon Stadium in Port Harcourt.
Rivers United are at the bottom of the table with three points from three games,but a win for the Stanley Eguma led side will return them back in the mainstream of their campaign.
Eguma , while optimistic of home victory admitted that failure to grab the three maximum points in Port Harcourt, would spell doom for Pride of Rivers.
“We have made too many mistakes so far in the competition. Even in our victory against FUS Rabat (in Port Harcourt on 24 May), we did not play to our usual level.
“This is a very tough group where no team has lost any points at home.
Meanwhile, CAF has appointed Burkinabe referees for the crucial game for both sides’ chances of reaching the knockout stages of the competition .
Juste Ephrem Zio is the referee with his two assistants, Seydou Tiama and Max Phillipo Toe, who are also from Burkina Faso.
The fourth official for the game, Boukari Ouedrago is also from Burkina Faso while the match commissioner, Frederick Eric Crentsil is from Ghana.
