The Federation of Uganda Football Associations (FUFA) has on Wednesday morning appointed an interim technical team that will take charge of the Uganda U-20 Women team, ahead of the team’s U-20 Women World Cup qualifying campaign.
Former national team player and U-17 Crested Cranes assistant coach Oliver Mbekeka will be in charge of the team and will be assisted by another former Crested Cranes star Christine Wanyana.
Former Rwanda Amavubi Stars goalkeeping coach Ibrahim Mugisha has been appointed as goalkeeping coach for the team.
Mugisha who is also a former Uganda Cranes custodian returned home from Rwanda after partying ways with APR FC in July last year and has since been voluntarily working at Uganda Premier League side Proline FC.
He was also strongly tipped to take over goalkeeping duties of the senior Crane’s team under Johnathan McKinstry before Fred Kajoba beat him to the role on interim basis though.
In other roles assigned, Nalwadda Prossy will be in charge of kits, Katalidwa Mable the team doctor while Paul Mukatabala will be the team Co-ordinator.
The entire technical team has been tasked to guide Uganda to their maiden qualification into the U-20 World cup. With their campaign getting underway with an away tie against Tanzania in Dar es Salaam on 18th January 2020 before the return leg in Kampala on 1st February 2020.
The winner between Uganda and Tanzania will face the winner between Senegal and Sierra Leone on 21st March 2020 and later the return leg on 28th March 2020 in Kampala.
