Uganda's U-17 Women's  head Coach Ayubu Khalifah Kiyingi has said they are determined to score more goals against Ethiopia in the return leg of the FIFA Women's U-17 World Cup 2022 qualifiers.

Ethiopia came from two goals down to draw against Uganda 2-2 in the first leg played at the St. Marys Stadium, Kitende last weekend.

Today the team returned to training at the FUFA technical Centre in Njeru under the watchful eyes of Kiyingi who has vowed to make amends. The return leg will be played in Addis Ababa on March 20th with the winner over two legs qualifying for the second round.

Kiyingi explained that he is putting more focus on the strikers who didn't perform to the expectations in the first leg, adding that his side needs more than two goals if they are to overcome a resilient side in Ethiopia.
