CECAFA Women Championship 2018
Stade De Kigali, Rwanda
12th -20th May 2018
Life has dreams. Humanity calls for hard work that leads to success. For Crested Cranes, winning the regional crown will be the main motivation when they plot for the rest of the teams in the Championship that gets underway this weekend in the Rwandan capital, Kigali.
Farida Bulega’s charges reported in camp on Monday morning at African Bible University in Lubowa for further fine tuning in a more concentrated and relaxed environment.
‘We reported to camp today to prepare for the Regional tournament. The calm environment will help the players focus only on football and rectify on areas still with concerns’ said Bulega.
The Crested Cranes will resume training tomorrow morning at 9 O’clock then play a build-up match in the evening all in Lubowa.
