Coach Ayub Khalifa Kiyingi has summoned a provisional squad of 35 players to kick-start preparations ahead of Uganda’s encounter with Rwanda.

The two East African Nations will face off in the first round of the Paris 2024 Women’s Olympic Football Tournament Qualifiers next month.

Kiyingi who is the head coach of the U20 Women’s National Team will automatically serve as the assistant coach for the senior team in the new restructuring that FUFA made.

However, evaluation of applicants is ongoing for the Head Coach Women’s Senior Team (Crested Cranes) and Assistant Coach U-17 Women’s team (Teen Cranes) and the appointments will be confirmed in due course.

The team summoned is largely a composition of the Crested Cranes that featured at the Women African Cup of Nations last year in Morocco.

A good number of players from the U18 team have also been blended in.

It should be noted that the U18 Women’s national team has been in camp at FUFA Technical Centre, Njeru but the preparations were called off with the CECAFA U18 Women’s Championship in doubt.

The Crested Cranes will host Rwanda on 11th June 2023 before the two teams face off in Huye a week later.

The winner on aggregate will then proceed to the next round where Cameroon awaits.

The team will enter camp on Thursday, 29th June at Cranes Paradise Hotel, Kisasi.
