“Our aim is to first qualify for the 2022 AWCON in Morocco and hopefully take advantage of the direct entry slots to the 2023 World Cup that will be held in Australia and New Zealand,” Ouma is quoted by the Federations portal.
The tactician was speaking after Kenya rose to position 124 with a total of 986 points in the latest FIFA Women ranking this being an improvement from the 2019 ranking where they stood at position 133; an improvement that saw the team rise top in the East Africa region.
“I am glad to achieve our milestone of standing at the top in East Africa, right now, we are aiming to achieve our next milestone which is to be the team to beat in Africa,” Ouma added.
Six slots have been awarded to Africa to qualify for the 2023 FIFA Women World Cup with the semi-finalists in the 2022 Africa Women Cup of Nations earning direct entries to the global tournament.
