Orange CAF Champions League

KCCA v Nkana at Namboole (Saturday, 4pm) 

NKANA FC were in high spirits as they had their first training session in Kampala ahead of their CAF Champions League return leg against KCCA.

Skipper Sydney Kalume is confident his side will soar over past Geoge Nsimbe’s side into the second round of Africa’s biggest club competition.

Nkana were held to a 2-2 draw by KCCA in the first leg in the Zambian city of Kitwe last weekend.

“We are fit and prepared and focussed. You are in for a big surprise,” coach Masuso Mwale warned after Nkana’s morning training at the KCCA stadium in Lugogo.

“Every player in the team is focused and we have come to win. Home ground advantage in modern football is not a big factor,” added Mwale.

Contrary to the noisy hotel that KCCA were booked in in Kitwe, the visitors are staying in the quiet Hotel Africana.
