The Uganda national U17 women team has embarked on on-field preparations for the FIFA U17 Women World Cup 2020 qualifiers at the FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru where the team is camping.
Uganda plays Ethiopia in the first round with the first leg of the 2 legged fixture due to be played in Kampala next Saturday on January 11th, 2020 at the Star Times stadium, Lugogo and the return leg a week later in Ethiopia.
The team reported to camp last evening and after conducting their first training session this head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi was pleased with the response of his players.
“Being that they have been off, I expected their fitness levels to be a bit down so in today’s session we majorly focused on assessing and improving their fitness after which we did some ball works but on the whole I am pleased they are not badly off. We are going to build on that in the following sessions,” Khalifa noted.
