CECAFA Women’s U20 Championship
Matchday Two
Monday, 1st November 2021
Uganda vs Djibouti – 10:30AM
Ethiopia vs Eritrea – 1PM
Tanzania vs Burundi -4PM

Uganda will not only be looking at winning against Djibouti but rather scoring enough goals as the CECAFA Women’s U20 Championship enters Matchday two on Monday.

Well aware that the tournament is played on a round robin format, goals may be important in determining who wins the title and therefore, the target will be scoring as many goals as possible.

In their first game, Djibouti suffered a 7-0 loss to Ethiopia and the target will be to try and avoid shipping in the same tally against hosts and overwhelming favourites Uganda.

Coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi believes every game counts and he is not looking at Djibouti as a weak opponent.

“We go to every game with full commitment and our target is to win whenever we play. So we shall not get complacent because Djibouti lost their first game.” He said.

Captain Fauzia Najjemba who scored twice in the 5-1 win will be looking to add to her goal tally at the tournament in the fight for the top scores’ gong.
