Uganda's U-20 Women National team head coach Ayubu Khalifa Kiyingi has today summoned a provisional squad of 28 players to start preparations ahead of the FIFA Women's U-20 World Cup qualifiers.

Kiyingi's team will face South Africa in the third round of the qualifiers over two legs. The first leg will take place at the St. Marys Stadium, Kitende on December 3rd, before the return leg in South Africa.

The tactician has maintained almost the same squad he summoned for the last qualifiers with Cyprus based striker Juliet Nalukenge who didn’t take part in the just concluded U-20 Cecafa championship also getting back to the team.

According to FUFA the team will enter residential camp on Friday at the Paradise Hotel in Kisaasi and start training on Saturday morning.

The qualifiers that started last August with 40 teams have now entered the third round with 16 teams. According to the qualifiers’ setting, the best two teams will book tickets to represent Africa in the FIFA U-20 Women's World Cup.
