U-20 Women National team has entered residential
training at the FUFA Technical center in Njeru to prepare for the FIFA 2022 World Cup qualifiers.
The team is expected to train for two weeks to boost
the fitness levels of the young players who have spent a lot of time without
active football courtesy of COVID-19 restrictions.

23rd-25th September 2021 for the first leg and later from 7th to

Oliver Mbekeka, who was retained as Assistant Coach.

squad of 30 players whom he will use to execute the world cup qualifying
Before entering the camp, Kiyingi applauded the local soccer
governing body for giving a platform to the girls to participate in the FIFA World Cup qualifiers.
He, however, expressed his fear about the fitness levels of the players who have spent a lot of time
without active football.
