The Capricorn Eagles will soon be diving into preparations for the Africa World Cup Qualifiers scheduled for December in Uganda.

With formidable opponents like Botswana, Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Zimbabwe, and the host nation, Uganda, the contest is expected to be fierce.

All teams will vie for the two spots in the World Cup, and the Capricorn Eagles will undoubtedly prepare well for the tournament.
