Kiyingi believes the addition of the aforementioned players will bring about the competition to the team as they prepare to face Kenya.

”We had the inclusion of four new players to make a total of 25. These girls were part of the initial list of 35 I had submitted but I could only work with 30. If you look at what they gave us in their first training with the group, I believe they will bring healthy competition to the team as we work towards the return leg,” said Coach Kiyingi.
