WINDHOEK, 16 AUG (NAMPA) – African Stars will go for victory when they face Kampala Capital City Authority in the return leg of the 2019 Confederation of African Football Champions League on 23 August, team coach Mohammed Gargo has said.
The two teams will meet during the return leg of the preliminary round of the championships.
During their courtesy call on Friday to Namibia Wildlife Resorts, which will sponsor the team’s accommodation while in Uganda, Mohamed Gargo said: “We are ready and we are going all out to win. The guys have come to understand what is at stake in this match. We will not reveal our tactics of the day to you here as we will be giving them ammunition to attack us.”
He explained that the players do not have new injuries except the goalkeeper, whom the coach doubt will be fit to play in Uganda, although he indicated that he will be ready to play.
“We will wait for the doctor’s orders. In order to save the keepers’ career it is better I leave him out of the team,” the coach added.
Team captain Pat-Nevin Uanivi said the mood in the team was very positive and the players are ready.
“We are going there for a win, a draw will be fine but we want a win. We trained hard to fix the mistakes we made in the first match. The whole team prepared to defend and attack as a unit,” he said.
Ambrosious Amseb said they aim to score first and avoid conceding silly goals so as to win the match convincingly.
“We have speed and they lack it, especially at the back. We will use that to our advantage. Our aim is to reach the group stages and it starts here,” Amseb added.
Meanwhile, NWR Acting Chief Executive Officer Matthias Ngwangwama wished the team well, saying they should represent Namibia well in Uganda.
Stars leave for Uganda on Monday.
