The Uganda U17 Girls national team have beefed up their preparations for the upcoming U17 Women World Cup qualifiers second leg against Tanzania.
Ayub Khalifa’s side lost 2-1 to their Tanzanian counter parts in the first leg and will be hoping to overturn that deficit.
The second leg will be played this weekend at the StarTimes Stadium in Lugogo with Uganda needing just a 1-0 victory to progress to the next round.
After successfully completing a week of training, the team continued preparations on Monday at the FUFA Technical Center in Njeru.
Speaking after the morning session, Khalifa noted that the girls were performing well to training.
“We have had a good training session, said Khalifa.
“We were working and concentrating on speed.
“The girls’ performance on the day was good and very promising.
“We are now going to concentrate on transition and how fast we can move the ball from defence to attack.”
The loss to Tanzania was Uganda’s first loss since the team was formed last year.
They have been in brilliant form since inception, winning both the COSAFA U17 and CECAFA U17 Girls tournaments in 2019.
