Al Masry fall to late goal in CAF Confederation Cup match against KCCA
Al Masry looked to have escaped Uganda with a draw but were undone in added time by the dominant Kampala City Capital Authority (KCCA) side.
KCCA had Al Masry on the back foot right from kickoff. In the first five minute alone, they came close to scoring on two occasions. Majwega wasted his chance while Mucureezi was denied by the post. They continued their dominance through to halftime.
Al Masry did not offer much in the way of resistance, against the Ugandans attacks, or even opportunities of their own. But there was still room for them to showcase the talent in the Egyptian Premier League.

The second half began in the same way as the first but KCCA’s momentum was taken away by substitutions by both technical benches. The match was reduced to a contest between the Ugandans’ physicality and, what KCCA perceived to be, the Egyptians’ time-wasting antics.
With five minutes added on, it looked like Al Masry would match the result of African champions, Mamelodi Sundowns, at the Phillip Omondi stadium but it was not to be. Substitute, Derrick Nsibambi was on-hand to slot home a Ochan’s freekick in what was the last move of the game.
