Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) goal-hero Ceasar Okhuti felt hard work paid off after he fired a brace to ensure his side beat Soana FC 2-0 on Tuesday evening in the Azam Uganda Premier League at Nakivubo stadium.
Okhuti scored his first for the club just after 4 minutes of play as he cleared the ball into the box from a mess created by Didi Muhammad in the dangerous area. He pounced again in the second half from an uncleared corner kick to seal the three points for the league leaders.
KCCA coach Mike Mutebi felt the two strikes were lucky and could probably be repeated, nevertheless man of the match Okhuti was delighted.
“It’s a blessing to play such a big game and score such wonderful goals but if you work hard and believe in yourself, such things happen,” he told EagleOnline after the game.
“We still go and fight and the big man Mutebi (head coach) keeps pushing us every day. All we need is one chance. Mike wasn’t panicking at all at half-time. He just told us to keep working hard.
“We need to concentrate considering our position on the table. We need these chances, and if we utilise them, surely we would win the league.”
