Filed under: Sports |

Zambia’s envoys in the CAF Champions League Nkana FC have arrived safely in Kampala ahead of Saturday’s must win game against Kampala City Council Authority

FAZ Committee member Lee Kawanu who is the delegation leader has told that the team is in good spirits ahead of the second leg against the Ugandan champions.

“The KCCA officials received us well despite a slight delay at the airport because the bus provided for the team was too small to carry everyone. An official from there camp offered his mini bus and hired a taxi for the extra Nkana officials to take us to the hotel ”
Kawanu said.

The delegation leader has said FAZ had rejected the hotel arranged by the Ugandan club and opted for Africana hotel in Kampala.

“We rejected the hotel offered to us by KCCA because we were not pleased with the standard and quality of the accommodation. ”
Kawanu said.

Kawanu further added that Nkana had sent an advance party prior to travel and chose Africana hotel were the team has been camped.

“The only other glitch was the lack of a police escort, considering the drive from the airport to the hotel was over 30 kilometres we felt an escort was necessary just like
Nkana provided for KCCA in Zambia,” Kawanu observed.

Nkana is expected to train at the Mandela stadium today at 16:00 local time. Kawanu said the pitch at the stadium is bumpy but bearable and maintenance works are being
done ahead of kick-off at 16:00 hours local time ( 15:00 hours
Zambian time).

The twelve time Zambian champions need to win in Kampala or draw by a scoreline greater than their 2-2 draw in the first leg at Arthur Davies Stadium last Saturday to qualify to the next round.
