African Games: Uganda stands in Falconets path

Ambrose Ahimbisibwe

The East African representatives will hope to pour more misery onto Nigeria after their male counterparts defied odds to beat Flying Eagles in the opener.

Uganda U-20 Women’s National team take on holders Falconets in Semi-finals of the Women’s football tournament on Monday.

The highly contested clash is scheduled to take place at Cape Coast Stadium with both nations eyeing a spot in the finals.

Making debut at the African Games, Uganda have been a force to reckon at the 13th edition of the multi-Sport event.

Yet to concede defeat, Uganda were runner-ups from group A which had hosts Ghana, Ethiopia and regional neighbors, Tanzania.

For opponents Nigeria, they managed to top group B, winning all their games against Morocco ( 2-0), and Senegal ( 4-0).

Tipped as favorites, Danjuma’s side now need to overcome Uganda’s test if they are to reclaim the gold they won in 2019.

In the other Semi-final clash, the Black Princesses of Ghana play Senegal few hours later at the same venue.
