“I never played in the last one & it was painful for me so I'm happy that I have a chance this time round. I’m itching for it,” said Erasmus.

“African competition is important to the Chairman & the Club so being part of it is special for me. I want to make an impact"

Erasmus says that they have tried to inquire information about Uganda Revenue Authority: “We've tried to find as much info about URA but it's not so easy. We're going in with the same energy we go into all games.”
