2 min read

The Uganda U20 Women’s National Team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has named the squad that will make the trip to Ghana.

Uganda is preparing for the return leg in the fourth round of the 2022 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers.

Kiyingi confirmed a list of 20 players, consisting of three goalkeepers, six defenders, six midfielders and five forwards.

Striker Juliet Nalukenge who missed the first leg is back into the squad.

The team will depart for Ghana on Thursday morning with the game slated for Saturday, 5th February in Cape Coast.

Ghana won the first leg 2-1 at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

This means that Uganda must win at least 2-0 in order to overturn the deficit and progress to the final qualifying phase that will have either Ethiopia or Tanzania.
