The Under-17 Football Women's team head coach, Ayubu Khalifa Kiyingi, says his team is set for their encounter with Ethiopia in their return leg in the FIFA Under-17 women world cup qualifiers.  

The team will depart Friday afternoon for Addis Ababa to have final preparations for their match slated for March 20th 2022 at Abebe Bikila Stadium, in Ethiopia.  The first leg that was played at St. Mary's Stadium at Kitende ended in a two-all draw.  

The Ethiopians, who conceded two goals in the first half managed to fight back in the second half leading to the draw. Now, after spending several weeks under intense training at FUFA's Technical center in Njeru,  Kiyingi believes he has equipped the girls with enough skills to face the Ethiopians in Addis Ababa. 

They hope to eliminate Ethiopia and storm the next level. The gaffer further explained that the technical bench has improved their goalkeeping department, which was his biggest worry after the first leg.

Hadijjah Nandago, the team captain, says that they have urged the players to increase their goal margin, which has been one of their biggest challenges.   

//Cue in: hopefully we are …  

Cue out: … going to win Ethiopia”//

The Ugandan team will need to pick a win to qualify for the next stage of the qualifiers. Only three teams will qualify to represent Africa at the FIFA U-17 Women’s World Cup 2022 to take place in India.
