‘We are targeting maximum points against Kenya’ – Aucho

Uganda Cranes captain Khalid Aucho claims that the players are ready to face Kenya and their ultimate target is to collect maximum points.

Uganda and Kenya will face off in East African derby on Thursday in the 2022 World Cup qualifier at St Mary’s Stadium in Kitende.

According to Aucho, they are not under any pressure as players because they understand their opponents well.

“My Ninjas are ready for the game against Kenya and the focus is to collect maximum points,” Aucho said.

“We aren’t under any pressure because we know our opponents in and out,” he added.

The two sides played for a goalless draw in the reverse fixture between them in Nairobi in September.

Uganda are on eight points and second to Mali, who have two more in Group E, and the two leaders face off on matchday six.

Goalkeepers: Charles Lukwago, Mathias Kigonya, Isma Watenga, Joel Mutakubwa.
