FUFA President Hon. Magogo Moses Hassim on Wednesday made a courtesy visit to Crested Cranes camp at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru as the team prepares to face Algeria in the 2024 TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers.
The President was in the company of Honorary FUFA EXCO Member Chris Kalibbala, FUFA Delegate Hassan Kirunda and FUFA National Teams Manager Patrick Ntege.
In his remarks, the President cautioned the players against complacency as they take on Algeria.
“We have to be very serious because this is a very big game,” he started before adding, “If Algeria knocks us out, we shall wait for another three years. The opportunity is here; make use of it because you are not sure you will be around next time.”
“We do need to be complacent. There are not so many opportunities in Africa but in football, whoever wants more, wins.
As the FA, we want to give you maximum support.” He added.
Uganda will host Algeria on Wednesday next week at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru before with the return leg slated for 26th September in Oran.
The winner on aggregate between Uganda and Algeria will face either Burundi or Ethiopia in the final qualification round.
