Uganda U20 Women’s National Team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has summoned a provisional squad of 28 players to commence preparations for the forthcoming encounter against Ghana.

Uganda will face Western African side Ghana in the fourth round of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers with the winner on aggregate advancing to the final qualifying phase.

The squad summoned is largely composed of players that have been part of recent engagements with the only exception being defender Winnie Nakanwagi who earns her first call.

Nakanwagi who plays for Uganda Martyrs High School FC is comfortable as a left-back but can as well play across the entire backline.

Midfielder Shamirah Nalugya who was ruled out of the encounters with South Africa at the third round with a shoulder injury bounces back to the team.

The team will enter residential camp today at Cranes Paradise Hotel in Kisaasi with training sessions conducted at Lugogo Stadium.
