Uganda ends hope for Tanzania in U-17 Women World Cup Qualifiers

Uganda whitewashed their counterparts in Tanzania in the 2020 FIFA U-17 Women World Cup qualifying game played at Lugogo on Saturday.

Coming into the game, the visitors had carried 2-1 advantage after the game in Dar-es-Salaam but on Saturday, Uganda put up a spectacular show to outwit them in a five-goal thriller.

In front of a fully packed StarTimes stadium, Uganda scored five times in the Tanzanian goal as Fauzia Najjemba, Margaret Kunihira, Hadijja Nandago, Grace Aluka, and skipper Juliet Nalukenge were on a scoring spree to inflict pain on the Tanzanians whose goalkeeper was only relegated to picking balls from her net.

The result ensured Uganda registered their first-ever win against Tanzania in a 6-2 aggregate but also saw them advance to the playoffs where they will face Cameroon that outwitted Sao Tome and Principe.
