KCCA midfielder Paul Mucureezi was all smiles after his side shook off a scare to beat Kataka FC 5-2 in the quarter finals of the Uganda Cup.

The hosts shocked the Kasasiro as the two teams went into the break with the FUFA Big League side leading 2-1 despite KCCA taking a lead through Brian Majwega in the 22nd minute.

Mucureezi, who came off the bench to set up two goals, was delighted with not only his team’s performance but his as well.

“It was a tough game,” he told Kawowo Sports. “But the most important thing is that the boys held on and we progressed,” he added.

On a personal note, assisting two crucial goals as the games waned on. The one for the second goal stands out though.

For Derrick Nsibambi’s second goal on the brace, Mucureezi beat the entire visitors backline including the keeper with a dummy before laying for the number 9 who slotted into an empty net.

The Kasasiro will now face Police FC in the semi-finals as they seek to reach the semi-finals for a fourth succession season.
