Uganda’s U17 girls team has defeated Djibouti 11:0 in the on-going CECAFA U17 women Challenge Cup at the Njeru based FUFA technical centre on Wednesday.

Djibouti lost her second match of the tournament after losing 14:0 to Kenya on Monday.

Uganda scored seven goals in the first half and sealed off the day’s win with four goals in the second half.

Uganda side earned three goals from Fauzia Najjemba, two from Juliet Nalukenge, two from Margret Kunihira, whereas Hadijah Nandago, Stella Musubika, Samalie Nakachwa and Kevin Nakachwa scored one goal each.  

The teams had a slow game as Djibouti players suffered minor injuries throughout the game causing match poses after every five minutes of play.

Djibouti’s head coach Fatouma Mousa says that her team is aiming at attaining better results in the tournament.   “We came to present the best and the girls are doing their best in this tournament. Our hope is to present a better performance and we strive to exhibit our very best in the remaining games,” she says.

Uganda’s coach Ayub Khalifah says that the girls failed to score more goals due to their counterpart’s time-wasting tactics. “The girls had anticipated for more goals, however, our opponents kept on falling down every now and then which killed our team’s morale to score more goals as earlier on expected,” he says.

Meanwhile, Burundi and Tanzania played out for 3 all draw whereas Eritrea and Kenya drew 1:1.
