Uganda emerged third at the 2018 COSAFA Women’s Championship after registering a hard fought 1-0 win over Zambia at Wolfson stadium, South Africa on Friday. Captain Tracy Jones Akiror scored a first half strike from the penalty spot.
Coach Faridah Bulega made only one change from the team that lost to South Africa in the semifinal on Thursday with Juliet Nalukenge starting ahead of Zaina Namuleme.
Despite efforts from Zambia to level matters, the Crested Cranes remained resilient up to the final whistle and registered their third victory in the five games played at the tournament.
Bulega made changes in the second half introducing Hasifah Nassuna for youngster Lillian Mutuuzo and Namuleme for Resty Nanziri. Akiror fired Uganda in the lead three minutes after the half hour mark converting a penalty following a foul on Nalukenge inside the penalty area.
