Kampala Capital City Authority coach Mike Mutebi has announced his squad to face Tunisian side Club Africain in their final CAF Confederation Cup match this Friday.

Reports in Uganda suggest that Mutebi has made one change from the 18-man squad that beat FUS Rabat on Sunday.

The only change sees defender Habib Kavuma replacing midfielder Vincent Kayizzi who made a substitute appearance in the 3-1 victory at Lugogo.

Kavuma returns to the team after serving a one match suspension after receiving a red card against Rivers United in Port Harcourt.


The Ugandan champions need a point to reach the quarterfinals of the second most lucrative club competition on the continent and Mutebi insists he won’t employ a defensive approach to secure a point.

“We are not going to Tunisia to sit back and defend, we are going to play our way. And our way is to attack but remain organised defensively,” Mutebi told the media.

“We can’t mortgage our identity. This business of parking the bus is not our way, we have to frustrate them even if they are home because I believe we have their players to match them.“

The full squad

Goalkeepers: Charles Lukwago and Benjamin Ochan

Defenders: Denis Rukundo, Peter Magambo, Denis Okot, Timothy Awany, Paul Musamali, Habib Kavuma and Isaac Muleme.

Midfielders: Julius Poloto, Isaac Kirabira, Muzamir Muzamiru, Ibrahim Sadam Juma, Jackson Nunda, Allan Okello and Mucureezi Paul

Centre Forwards: Derrick Nsibambi and Geoffrey Sserunkuma
