Victors knocksout Mbabane Highlanders in CAF Confederations Cup

Victors  knocksout Mbabane Highlanders in CAF Confederations Cup

Uganda’s Victors football club knocked out Swaziland’s Mbabane Highlanders in the CAF Confederations Cup, following a 4-1 penalty shoot out win at Nakivubo Stadium in Kampala last evening

Isaac Katwine converted Ssebuza Sula’s 25th minute corner, giving the hosts a first half lead. Meanwhile, the guests did not sit back and relax as Daman Kalasi scored the Highlanders equalizer in the 80th minute, leaving the two legs delicately balanced 2-2 on aggregate.

There was need to determine the winner since Victors snatched an away point from the Highlanders and hence penalty shoot out was the only option and the host proved better shooters than the guests.

The Swazis dominated the match and boasted the biggest possession as if they were the hosts and if it was not for the Victors goalkeeper Ali Kimera who made brilliant saves,  Highlanders would have snatched a win against the Jinja Boys.

Victor’s goalkeeper Ali narrowly missed a red card in the 54th minute after a rough tackle to Highlanders' Sam Mbaya Katalo who dominated the midfield and though his side lost on penalty shoot out,  Katalo deserved to be named man of the match.

Victors coach Sam Nsimbe appreciated his team for the win though unhappy with the poor performance at the pitch.

Uganda's CAF Confederations Cup representatives are likely to face DR Congo's DC Motema Pembe in the next round, after they beat KMKM 4-0 in the first leg in Zanzibar.
