Magogo Increases Winning Bonuses After Uganda’s Spirited Triumph Over Tanzania

FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers

Uganda 5-0 Tanzania Aggregate (6-2)

FUFA president Eng. Moses Hashim Magogo was overwhelmed by Uganda’s obliterating performance in the Tanzania 5-0 win during the FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers return leg at Lugogo.

Magogo, who had earlier promised a $200 winning bonus to each player provided Uganda overturns the 1-2 first leg defeat and progress to the final qualification round, changed his minds though as he increased the bonus by $100.

The CAF Executive Committee member increases the players’ winning bonuses by One hundred dollars ($100) and this was revealed during the dressing room post-match address.

FUFA Communications Director, Ahmed Hussein Marsha has confirmed to ChimpReports about the new development in an online interview.

“Yes, the FUFA president has increased their winning bonuses by $100 which will be transferred on their accounts on Monday,” he noted.

Uganda obliterated Tanzania 5-0 (6-2 on agg) to progress to the final qualification round, a game that attracted a huge turn up of spectators who filled the StarTimes Stadium.


Margaret Kunihira, Grace Aluka, Fauziah Najjemba and Juliet Nalukenge’s brace guided Uganda to a stunning victory at home.

The winner between Uganda and Cameroon will book a berth in the 2020 FIFA U17 Women’s World Cup tournament scheduled to take place in India.
