Rwanda settles for stalemate against Tanzania in Mwanza

Posted on Jul 15 2017

Rwanda forced Tanzania to a 1-1 draw in their second round, Central-East Zone qualifier for the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) on Saturday.

The match at the CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza ended all square after 90 minutes, leaving the tie very much in the balance ahead of the return leg at Stade de Kigali in Nyamirambo next Saturday.

The Amavubi team secured the lead - and a potentially vital away goal - in the 18th minute when Dominique Savio Nshuti found the back of the net.

However, in the 34th minute, the Taifa Stars hit back to level the game at 1-1 through Himid Mao’s spot kick when Aimable Rucogoza handled Simon Msuva’s attempt in the box leading to a penalty.

The Amavubi team delegation is expected in Kigali on Sunday night, 20h25 aboard RwandAir flight from Kilimanjaro.

The two will face off on Saturday 22nd July at the Kigali stadium in the return leg.

The aggregate winner of the tie will face either South Sudan or Uganda in the final qualifying round for a ticket to the Kenya finals.

In the other regional match played on Saturday, Ethiopia thumped Djibouti 5-1 at the El Hadj Hassan Gouled Aptidon Stadium in Djibouti City.

The win for the Walya Antelopes has all but confirmed that they will progress into the final phase of qualification and face Burundi (who advanced automatically after Sudan’s disqualification).

Getaneh Kebede opened the scoring late in the first half to put Ethiopia 1-0 up, while the second half saw the visitors add a further four goals - with only one in reply from Djibouti.

The return leg will be held at the Hawassa International Stadium in Ethiopia next weekend.
