Wednesday, 4th April 2018 3pm
Uganda senior Women’s football team (Crested Cranes) will seek for a good result against Kenya as the two sides meet on Wednesday.
Kenya Starlets will host the Crested Cranes in the first leg of the 2018 Africa Women’s Cup of Nations qualifiers at Machakos stadium.
Head coach Faridah Bulega states that the intention is to get a descent result away from home and build on that in the return leg.
“We are in good shape, the mood in the camp is high and the players are ready to face Kenya,” she said before adding “our target is to get a positive result in Kenya so that we can build on that in the second round.”
Skipper Hasifa Nassuna is unfazed about the recent poor results for Uganda against Kenya indicating this is a different chapter.
“We have lost to them in the recent times but I believe that is behind us now. This is a different chapter all together and we are ready to fight and pick a good result here,” she indicated.
The last time that the two teams faced off was during the 2016 CECAFA Championship and Kenya won the game 4-1.
