On fire KCCA Football Club forward Muhammad Shaban who was last week appointed as captain for the Uganda Hippos at the upcoming COSAFA U-20 championship in Zambia is optimistic that they will deliver. The team set off yesterday and on arrival in Zambia they checked in at the Nobutula Lodge in Kitwe Zambia 60 km away from the Mwanawasa Airport.
