Victors FC v Caps United

ITâ€™S said that fortune befriends the bold.
In five-year old Victors FCâ€™s case, not even Caps Unitedâ€™s vast experience, can make the Ugandansâ€™ resolve to win their international debut waver.
â€œWe are going to do exactly what Ugandans want us to do. We are going to beat Caps United,â€ promised coach George Lutalo, who like the side he recently took charge of, is also in his first international as a coach.
Lutalo is confident that in the attacking trio of Simon Sserunkuuma, Julius Ongude and Moses Ndaula, he has the necessary firepower to blast in the goals.
Sserunkuuma can run down defence lines and cross balls with pin point precision from any wing.
Ongude, the teamâ€™s 2008 top scorer, enriches the attack with his high work rate while Ndaula is a priceless asset due to not only his killer passes, but also the historical dimension he brings to todayâ€™s action.
His father, also by the names Moses Ndaula, was part of the Cranes sides that played against some of the finest Zimbabwean players ever in the early eighties.
These include the feted striker Shacky â€œMr. Goalsâ€ Tauro, the late Stanley â€œSinyoâ€ Ndunduma, Joel â€œJubileeâ€ Shambo, Stanford â€œStixâ€ Mtizwa, Friday â€œBreakdownâ€ Phiri, Clever Muzuva, Size Torindo and Brenna Msiska.
Striker Limited Chikafa and midfielder Oscar Machapa are the men the hosts will have to watch today. Machapa had to be recalled from a professional trial in South Africa for the Kampala mission. Coach Lloyd Chitembwe was tight lipped about his side.
Victors line-up: S. Musasizi, J. Mukubya, I. Kazibwe, I. Kizza, I.Katwere(capt), R. Luyima, F. Muhumza, J. Ongude, M. Ndaula, S. Sserunkuma.
