Uganda vs South Africa in the return leg of the third round of FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers with the game slated for Friday, 17th December at Dobsonsville Stadium.

 

U20 Women’s National Team Head Coach, Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has named the final squad of 20 players that will travel to Johannesburg, South Africa ahead of the 2022 FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers.

 

Uganda won the first leg 1-0 at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende on 3rd December courtesy of Hadijah Nandago’s goal.

 

The squad named comprises three goalkeepers, seven defenders, five midfielders, and five forwards.

 

Striker Juliet Nalukenge who plies her trade at Chrysomolia FC on loan from Apollon Ladies FC and scored a hat trick over the weekend is part of the squad having arrived in the country on Monday.

Coach Kiyinigi indicates the squad named can register a good result and progress to the next round.

 

“I think these are the best players we have selected to go and do the job. I have the belief that the squad selected is competent to help us secure the result we want,” said the gaffer.

 

 

“We carry a 1-0 advantage into the second leg but that doesn’t mean we shall go and sit back. We want to go and win in South Africa.” He added.

The team departs Entebbe International Airport on Wednesday aboard Ethiopian Airways E809 and is expected to touch base in Johannesburg.

 

The winner on aggregate between Uganda and South Africa will progress to the fourth round where they will face either Ghana or Zambia.

 

Uganda who won against Tanzania on their independence day with Hadija Nandago on the score sheet again will hope to emulate a similar performance to progress to the next round.

 

But South Africa will need to break the deadlock with a win a must result for them if they are to progress.

Fauzia Najjemba, the Kampala Queens attacker is all smiling as she travels to South Africa with Uganda under 20 side.

According to the Fufa website, she was handed a brand new car following her triumph as the Female footballer of the year last month, courtesy of the Airtel awards.

The 18-year-old who plays for Kampala Queens, captains the U-20 side, and also participates in the crested cranes believes this achievement will further motivate her to work harder.

It feels good, you know it is not an easy thing to own a car at a young age. I was excited. I still couldn’t believe it but yes it was true I was a car owner. For this, I will forever be grateful to Airtel, FUFA, and other partners for making this dream come true.” Najjembe told FUFA’s media.

In 2019 Najjembe played in tournaments (COSAFA U17 and CECAFA U17) for which she had a considerably good year.
