Uganda U17 Girls’ football national team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has named the team that will start against Tanzania on Sunday.

Tanzania host Uganda in the first leg of the second round of the 2020 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup qualifiers at the National stadium, Dar es Salaam.

Kiyingi has maintained the core of the team that has featured in the previous games with the only change being Grace Aluka.

Aluka comes in as a replacement for injured Stella Musubika at the heart of defence and she will partner Bira Nadunga.

Daphine Nyayenga maintains her slot in goal while Samalie Nakachwa and Sumaya Komuntale are the right and left backs respectively.

With Kevin Nakachwa also ruled out due to injury, winger Catherine Nagadya has been deployed as a makeshift defensive midfielder.
