Uganda U17 Women’s national team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has trimmed the provisional squad to a sizeable number as preparations for the forthcoming FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers intensify.

The team is preparing to face Ethiopia at the first round of the Qualifiers with the first leg slated for 4th March 2022 at St. Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

After five days of residential training at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru, the coach has decided to reduce the number from 50 to 30 and it is from here that the final squad of 20 will be named.

“We have had five days in camp and this period has helped us to select the cream that will be retained here. Given the fact that most of the girls had had a long lay off, we asked FUFA to have a big number and indeed we have benefited from it.” He said.

After the reduction, the number in camp will come to 25 with the other five expected to join on Monday.

The five are players that recently featured for the Uganda U20 Women’s National Team against Ghana and will have FUFA Women Super League engagements over the weekend at their respective clubs.

These include; Shakirah Nyinagahirwa, Hadijah Nandago and Phiona Nabulime all from Kawempe Muslim Ladies FC plus Catherine Nagadya and Joweria Nagadya from Uganda Martyrs WFC and Lady Doves FC respectively.
