We have a mission that we must fulfill here in Egypt and that is qualifying to the groups. The players are set, focused and ready to deliver to their maximum
The captain told www.kccafc.co.ug, adding that he expects a tough challenge from the Egyptians, he also added.
Of course they will come all out to attack because we have the lead but that doesn’t frighten us. We just need to remain focused and efficient to try and score goals
Reports in Egypt indicate that Al Ahly fans have vowed to come and support KCCA as the Ugandans take on Al Masry on and Okot believes this could be a big boost for them.
If some of the Egyptians have decided to rally behind us, then that motivates us the more
