Uganda U-20 Women National team coach Oliver Mbekeka is optimistic that despite the late preparations her side will be in good shape to take on Tanzania in the 2020 FIFA U20 Women World Cup Qualifier between the two sides.

The Ugandan girls will clash with their opponents in the first leg of the qualifier in Dar-es-Salaam on Saturday before the return leg in Kampala on February 1.

“We have started on a low note because it has been a while since we came together, but by the end of the seven days that we will be here, the players will have picked up the needed tactics,” Mbekeka said.
