Mohammed Gargo won his first competitive match as head coach of Namibian side African Stars FC in their slim 3-2 win over Kampala Capital City Authority (KCCA) in their CAF Champions League first qualifying round first leg.

The Katutura giants did it the hard way by racing from a goal down when Ivan Kemberipa put the ball into his own net in the seventh minute.

In the 40th minute, Ambrosius Amseb converted a penalty after Peter Magambo handled in the area and the first half ended tied 1-1.


African Stars took the lead in the 71st minute through Youssouf Ibroihim scoring but KCCA equalized on 83 minutes courtesy Patrick Kaddu.

Ibroihim scored his second with a long range effort from outside the area to give African Stars a slim win.

The return leg will be played on 23 August in Kampala.
