Uganda U20 Women’s National Football Team coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has summoned a provisional squad of 28 players to begin preparations for the forthcoming FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifier matches against Senegal.
The Queen Cranes will enter residential camp on Sunday to embark on preparations.
Captain Hadijah Nandago and assistant captain Phiona Nabulime have been left out because they are doing their Senior six examinations.
Uganda will face Senegal in Dakar on 10th November 2023 before the two teams face off a week later at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru.
The Queen Cranes eliminated Mozambique 8-0 on aggregate to reach this level.
It should be noted that there will be one more round after the second round to determine the four teams that will represent Africa at next year’s FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup in Colombia.
