CECAFA U20 Women’s Championship: ‘Our target of going into the Championship is to win’ – Khalifah
The Uganda U20 Women’s national team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi claims that their ultimate target is winning ahead of the forthcoming CECAFA U20 Women’s Championship.
Uganda will host the inaugural regional Championship between 28th October -9th November 2021 in Njeru.
“I believe majority of the players are in good shape because they have been part of the set up and we have had only a few days of resting since the game we played against Kenya,” Kiyingi said before adding.
“Our target going into the Championship is to win it because that will give us momentum as we prepare to face South Africa,” he added.
Uganda conducted their first training sessions on Thursday October 21st at FUFA Technical Centre in Njeru.
Kiyingi believes the time they have now and the start of the tournament will be aimed at ironing mistakes.
It should be noted that the Uganda U20 Women’s National Team will face South Africa in the third round of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers in December.
