Brian Nyikuli takes over the captaincy from Wilson Kopondo who is unavailable for this fixture owing to academic commitments.
Addressing the press this morning, Team Manager Wangila Simiyu said, " We are using this match as a preparation for our Rugby Afrique match against Zimbabwe on 13th June. We have given an opportunity to some emerging players as we play against Portugal.
"We call upon fans to turn up in large numbers and rally behind the Simbas on Saturday."
