The Uganda U-20 women team hope to build on the crucial away goal after falling 2-1 away to Tanzania during the preliminary round, First Leg of the 2020 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup qualifiers at the National Stadium, Dar es Salaam.

U17 side captain Juliet Nalukenge gave Uganda the lead but the hosts rallied back to win through Diana Msewa and Clement Opa goals. Head coach Oliver Mbekeka says that they will rectify the mistakes in time before the return leg.

“We conceded through corners and we have to work on that before the return leg. The girls put in their best and I am optimistic we shall get the desired result at home,” noted Mbekeka.

The Return leg in Kampala will be played at the StarTimes Stadium, Lugogo on February 2. The aggregate winner will play either Senegal or Sierra Leone at the next stage.
