Crested Cranes interim head coach Charles Ayiekho Lukula has named a 20-player squad that the technical team has trusted to finish the job in Cameroon.
Uganda will play away to the West Africans in the second leg of the the first round of qualification to the 2024 Paris Women’s Olympics Football.
In the first leg, Catherine Nagadya and Fazila Ikwaput scored while goalkeeper Vanessa Karungi who even stopped a first half penalty kept a clean sheet to ensure that now Uganda carries a 2-0 lead into the return leg slated for Tuesday next week.
Team Uganda is already on the move to West Africa this morning, the contingent of 35, headed by Dr. Apollo Ahimbisibwe Bugingo departed Entebbe International Airport on Saturday at 2: 45AM aboard Ethiopian Airways.
The team will have a stopper over in Addis Ababa before connecting to Douala, Cameroon where the game will be played.
The winner on aggregate between Uganda and Cameroon will face either Nigeria or Ethiopia at the next qualification phase of the 2024 Paris Women’s Olympic Football Tournament.
