Uganda Crested Cranes head coach George Lutalo has reiterated his side is set to compete at the June CECAFA Women’s Championship.

The gaffer asserted that the team is both physically and mentally upbeat for the tournament that kicks off on Wednesday at the FUFA Technical Center, Njeru.

“I want to say that the players named are ready to compete,” stated Lutalo to the press on Tuesday.

“We have prepared them both physically and mentally. The players that are not on the final list will continue to be with us in camp because we know there is another tournament ahead,” he added.

Lutalo also declared Shadia Nankya as the captain in the absence of Ruth Aturo. Hasifah Nassuna will be the assistant skipper.

Upon being named head of the troops, Nankya expressed her readiness to diligently serve.

“We are ready and cannot wait to get the tournament underway. I believe we are one unit and everyone is committed towards winning.”

Burundi and Djibouti will open the tournament on Wednesday before Uganda takes on Rwanda later on in the day.

Uganda and Rwanda are in Group A together with Djibouti and Burundi while Tanzania, Zanzibar, South Sudan and Ethiopia are pooled in Group B.
