Vipers SC captain Milton Karisa has for the first time since his team’s humbling defeat to Raja Casablanca in the CAF champions league group stages opening match made a reaction.

Uganda’s representatives were beaten 5-0 thanks to goals by Hamza Khabba, Jamal Harkass, Mohamed Zrida, Yousri Bouzouk and Roger Aholou which took them to the top of their group C.

” After a result like Friday’s I think the first 48 hours are about digesting what happened and being critical with your own performance, but after that you can ask some questions, sit together as a team and move forward from there.

“But you need to do that as a group, without any friction or individual finger pointing, because we are a team.

“One day you make a mistake, but the next time maybe you will win the game. If one of your team-mates makes a mistake, the next one has to step in to avoid that mistake costing us something.

“That’s the important thing about being a team, and that determines how good you can be.

“Everybody is upset with what happened on Friday, but we don’t need any extra motivation for a game as big as Saturday’s. We need to get up again, and I know we have the capability to do that.

The Venoms will next face Guinea’s Horoya who were 1-0 winners over Tanzania’s Simba.

The captain believes Vipers have the ability to bounce back and restore their hopes of progression.

“We have got a great chance to get this right. We know how important it is to win that game against Horoya.”
