The focus for coach Sheryl Botes is to ensure that her charges can overcone Senegal. The coach is optimistic ahead of the game and believes Uganda stands a good chance to win.

“We are ready and prepared to face Senegal. Every game requires a different approach and we have tried to look at that in our preparations and I am optimistic that we shall be able to win,” said Botes.

With this being the final game at the tournament, the coach wants to make a blend of players that have been playing regularly and those that have been on the fringes. “We will see how we can play and maintain our structure and approach and strike a balance between players that have been playing and those who have had minimal appearance.”
