Despite the fact that KCCA FC failed the test to overturn a first leg defeat at the hands of Libyan unknowns Abu Salim, one player left his mark on the game.
The Kasasiro boys needed to score two unanswered goals to advance to the much coveted stage but they came shot after allowing in two goals at Kitende.
Mohammed Shaban had given KCCA an early lead in the 17th minute but the tie winner couldn’t come before the visitors equaliser from the spot at the back of a counter attack.
When tasked to single out a player that impressed him the most from the hosts’ side, Chokri Khatoui pointed out two goal hero Arafat Usama .

Abdulmunem Aleiyan and Peter Nworah scored the visitors’ vital goals as the game ended 3-2 in favour of KCCA FC
