Khalid Aucho will play just in front of Wasswa to do the donkey work in terms of limiting the Egyptians but also offering offensive support.

Derrick Nsibambi leads the line with on form Emmanuel Okwi and Farouk Miya playing in a supporting cast while Joseph Ochaya completes the lineup at the left flank.
