FIFA U17 Women World Cup: Fans Should Expect The Best – Khalifa

The Uganda national U17 Women team head coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi claims that fans should expect the best from his team.

According to Khalifa, his team is very much prepared to pass the Ethiopian test in the first leg of the FIFA U17 Women World Cup qualifiers first round fixture on Saturday evening at the Star Times stadium, Lugogo.

“We are set and very ready for the game. Our target is not just to win but with many goals because this being a two legged affair we need to score as many goals  that maybe helpful going into the second,” Khalifa said before adding.

“I don’t know much about our opponents because they chose not to participate in the CECAFA U17 Women Challenge Cup late last year but our assumption is that their style doesn’t so much differ from how the senior team plays that is to say with short passed. Nevertheless we are ready for whatever they will throw at us,” he added.

The return leg of this fixture is set to be played on January 26th in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The overall winner of the two legs will play the winner between Tanzania and Burundi in the second round.
