The
national team got the better chances especially in the first half with Fauzia
Najjemba and Nalukenge all getting close but failed to find the target.

It was
Nyinagahirwa who opened the scores when he tapped home past onrushing
goalkeeper Akujo in goal for Kamapala Select team.

Najjemba’s
long pass from the left wing cut across the defence line and met Nyinagahirwa
at the far post. She calmly controlled and lobbed the ball into the back of the
net.

Ayub Khalifa’s
charges nearly doubled the lead moments later when Najjemba went through on
goal but his attempted lobe past the goalkeeper sailed a few inches wide.

Khalifa
made two changes before the break introducing Maureen Nangozi and Catherine
Nabukeera for Zaitun Namaganda and Kevin Nakachwa respectively.

In the
second stanza, Kampala Select coached by Isma Mukiibi also called for changes
bringing on Ronah Nantege, Immaculate Odalu, Swabrah Nkooba, Shakira Nalule,
Brenda Kwaka, Asiat Naluggwa, Shamina Birungi, Alizik Namakula, Eve Nagayi,
Patricia Busingye and Jovia Nassanga among others.

Khalifa
indicated, the practice match helped him assess his team knows where he needs
to improve.

“It
was a good gauge for us to know where we stand. The progress is evident since
we began the camp and I’m optimistic we will continue to improve in areas we
struggled today.”
