FAM Technical Director John Kaputa said the tournament achieved its objectives as a number of unknown players got noticed. “ The players put a good show and we put in place a Technical study group that included National team coach RVG and his backroom stuff to analyze all the six games.

“ The Group will produce a report and top young talented players will be considered for national teams,” said Kaputa.
