Uganda’s journey at the TotalEnergies Women’s Africa Cup of Nations Qualifiers agonizingly came to an end on Tuesday in Oran, Algeria.
The Crested Cranes played out a one all draw in the return leg against Algeria, a result which meant the latter advanced to the next round 3-2 on aggregate.
In the game played at Stade Olympic D’Oran, the hosts took the lead through Naima Bouhani in the 3rd minute.
Fauzia Najjemba scored the equalizer in the 66th minute, converting from the spot after she was fouled in the box.
The result was however not enough to send Uganda to the next round.
The team will now shift focus to the 2024 Olympic Qualifiers with Cameroon waiting in November.
