Posted Tuesday, October 1 2013 at 01:00
A few days after comprehensively dispatching South Sudan 13-0 and 22-0 on aggregate, the coaching staff of Uganda U-20 Women’s team faces an anxious few days to know if they will have all their players available for their next game against Egypt.
Edward Kaziba, the head coach, told Daily Monitor, that he is likely to be without at least five players for the first leg. Sandra Nabweteme , Tracy Akiror, Jenninfer Awadifo, Ruth Aturo and Viola Nambi might have to sit out the tournament as they prepare for their final examinations. “It is true they could miss out,” said Kaziba.
“But the federation is in negotiations with the respective school authorities and parents to have them available, may be, for the second leg.” The coach also revealed that the team will return to training only a week before they play Egypt on the weekend starting October 25. Prior to playing South Sudan in the return leg, the team had only two days of training. The technical team is, however, well aware that Egypt will be a tougher opponent.
“The game against Egypt will be more difficult but we know how they play. “We will try and stop them from playing through the wings,’’ said American Lisa Berg, Uganda Women Football’s technical director.
