• CECAFA Women’s U20 Championship | Matchday Two
  • Uganda 13-0 Djibouti

Uganda U20 Women’s National Team captain Fauzia Najjemba was in scintillating form as Uganda had a cleanout result against Djibouti at the ongoing CECAFA Women’s U20 Championship at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru on Monday.

The skipper orchestrated the damage against hapless Djibouti, scoring six of the 13 goals and thus ascending to the summit of the top scorers’ chart.

The six goals today mean she has eight in two games having scored a brace against Burundi in the first game.

The first goal for Uganda came as early as the sixth minute through Hadija Nandago. She would also go on to score another in the second stanza and end the game with a brace.
