Uganda’s U-20 women’s national team humbled their neighbors Burundi 5-1 on the opening day of CECAFA U-20 Women’s Championship in Njeru on Saturday.
However, their head coach – Ayub Khalifa has sounded captious saying his team’s performance had some lapses the fat win not withstanding.
“In yesterday’s game (against Burundi), we identified a few mistakes that need rectification, but, we have worked on them during our recovery training,” he said on Sunday.
The hosts play Djibouti in their second match on Monday at 10:30am, and Khalifa has promised a much improved showing from his side.
“We shall have a better performance; our target is to have the three points.”
Ethiopia will also enter the fray with Eritrea before Tanzania clash with Burundi later in the day.
Eritrea were subjected to a narrow 0-1 defeat by their counterparts of Tanzania before Ethiopia slashed Djibouti 7-0 in the other games staged on match day one.
The tournament is being played on a round robin system and only six nations are taking part.
Ethiopia lead the pack though level on three points with Uganda and Tanzania who follow them in that order.
Djibouti occupies the base of the log.
