Don’t underestimate Kenya – Massa



Cyprus-based Ugandan striker Geoffrey Massa insists the Cranes are not taking Harambee Stars for granted as the two sides gear up for the crucial 2012 Nations Cup qualifier on Saturday.

The striker, scorer in the 2-0 home victory over Guinea Bissau in June, joined camp on Tuesday.

While Massa told SuperSport.com they are confident of victory over Kenya, the Yenicami Agleden forward knows of the visitors’ threat.

“I can tell you, I’m sure of a win come Saturday,” he said after training at Namboole. “But that does not mean we take Kenya lightly. Actually, we don’t underrate them.”

“They have some good players but we know the importance of this game to us. We are aware of what is expected of us and it will be a collective effort. We have a good record at home and we shall qualify.”

Massa has already scored five goals in seven games since his move to his new club two months ago and will lead the line against the Harambee Stars.
