Nagadya delighted to return to national team fold after six years

Pittacus Lore once wrote that, ” don’t give up when you have lost hope, you have lost everything and when you think all is lost. When all is dire and bleak, there is always hope.”

The aforementioned inspirational quote appeals to Naome Nagadya who had to overcome challenges and return to her best.

Naome Nagadya in action for She Corporate FC against UCU Lady Cardinals FC.

The midfielder who recently guided She Corporate FC to winning the FUFA Women Super League title as captain indicates she feels excited to get back to her best and also return to the national team after six years.

She Corporate lift the FUFA Women Super League title.

“I feel excited to get back to the National Team. Definitely it has been down had work and keeping the commitment, she stated before adding, “I feel happy that after six years, I’m part of the Crested Cranes again.”

Nagadya recalls that she sustained a knee injury during her last appearance on the National Team and that kept her out of action for some time.

Naome Nagadya (second from right on the front row) played for Crested Cranes in 2017.

“I got injured at the 2016 CECAFA Senior Women’s Championship and that knee injury kept recurring. Later, I was forced to rest for two years to recover fully and I’m really delighted that I played an entire season without any concerns.”

The robust midfielder hopes to play a key role as Uganda prepares for the up coming CECAFA Senior Women’s Championship and Women Africa Cup of Nations.

“I want to work hard and make the final team that will play at CECAFA Women’s Championship and AWCON. It is always a pleasure to play for the National Team and I can’t wait to wear the jersey again.”

Uganda is in group A alongside Rwanda, Burundi and Djibouti at the CECAFA Senior Women’s Championship that gets underway on Wednesday, 1st June.

Group B has Tanzania, Zanzibar, South Sudan and Ethiopia.
