Uganda’s U16 narrowly loses to Wales

ISTANBUL

In their second match at the UEFA Friendship Tournament in Istanbul, Turkey, the Uganda U16 Women’s National Team faced Wales on Saturday 13th April in a closely contested battle.

Despite putting up a much-improved performance compared to their previous game, where they suffered a 7-0 defeat to Paraguay, Uganda fell short against Wales, conceding a late strike in the second half.

The goal proved to be the decider, leaving Uganda with no points in Group B after two games and placing them at the bottom of the standings.

However, Head Coach Charles Ayiekoh praised his players for their resilience and fighting spirit against a formidable Welsh side boasting players from established teams like Manchester United, Leicester, Reading, Blackburn, among others.

Despite the setback, Uganda looks ahead to their final group stage match against China on Tuesday, April 16th, 2024, with determination to finish the tournament on a positive note.
