U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers: Uganda to face Ghana in penultimate round



Uganda’s national U20 Women’s team will face Ghana in the second last round of the FIFA U20 Women’s World Cup Qualifiers.

The development comes after Ghana eliminated Zambia 1-0 on aggregate in the third round on Saturday evening.

The first leg had ended goalless in Lusaka before Ghana won the return leg 1-0 in Cape Coast courtesy of a goal from their skipper Evelyn Badu in the 35th minute.

Uganda also ejected South Africa with the same aggregate score having won the first leg in Kitende courtesy of Hadija Nandago’s lone header.
