Can Uganda Under-17 Beat Cameroon – Coaches Speak Out

Uganda Women Under 17 team is set to host Cameroon in the FIFA Under 17 Women World Cup Qualifiers.

The winner of two legs books a place at the World Cup next year.

Coached by Ayub Khalifa, Uganda will be hoping to use home advantage in the first leg which will be played between 30th October to 2nd November, 2020 in Kampala.

The return leg will be played on Cameroon in two weeks time.

Uganda eliminated Tanzania to reach the final round while Cameroon ousted Sao Tome and Principle.

Cameroon has represented Africa in two World Cups (2016, 2018).

The World Cup Under 17 will be staged in Indian Capital Mumbai next year.

Zzinda Alli (She Corporates FC) – Tactically, it will depend on how Cameroon play and the game approach that Ayub kiyingi and team will decide to use considering and depending on the player’s capabilities. Due to the fact that cameroon players are very physical, I think we need to have a lot of ball players on the pitch who can keep the ball, take it to them so that we can drag them to commit more fouls and we capitalize on that to get set-pieces and score many goals. Secondly, working on the mental toughness of the players is also important given the fact that we are playing a team that has a lot of expose and experience. So in order to humiliate them on and off pitch, we need to prepare our Girls so early and enough in terms of mental handling of the game.


Kayinda Mustapha (Gafford Ladies Team) – I believe we have excellent, skillful and knowledgeable players, but the problem is we are under pressure as compared to Cameroon. We should be able to use our chances and score many goals as early as possible. As we think of scoring many goals, our defenders should be at their best to make sure they don’t allow Cameroon to reach our goalkeeper more often.
