Uganda Women’s national football team (Crested Cranes) qualifies for the 2019 CECAFA Women Challenge cup after edging Ethiopia 1-0 during a group B match played at the Chamazi Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
Fauzia Najjemba was the heroine on the evening after scoring in the 73rd minute of the well contested duel.
Najjemba shot off her lethal left foot inside the goal area in an acute angle for the lone strike.
She raced onto the ball following a poorly headed clearance by Ethiopian defender after failure to deal with Shadia Nankya’s initial long ball from the back.
A win means that Uganda sealed a slot to the semi-finals of the competition with a game to play against Kenya on Thursday, 21st November 2019.
Meanwhile, Kenya humbled Djibouti 12-0, coming one goal shy of Uganda’s 13-0 over the same opponents on Sunday.
