Amavubi resume preps ahead of Tanzania return leg

Posted on Jul 17 2017

Rwanda Senior Men’s football team, Amavubi, resume training today ahead of the return leg against Tanzania due on Saturday at Stade de Kigali.

The Domestic team returned back from Mwaza on Sunday night and headed straight to their designated residential camp at Golden Tulip Hotel, Nyamata.

Today’s training is slated to be held at Kicukiro turf at 15h00.

Rwanda needs to stage a goalless draw to go through on an away goal rule but a win for Antoine Hey’s side over the Tanzania will comfortably earn them a place in the final round of the Central-East zone qualifiers of the Total African Nations Championship (CHAN).

In the first leg, Rwanda held Tanzania to a 1-1 draw in their first leg clash on Saturday, in the port city of Mwanza.

Visiting Amavubi needed only 18 minutes to hit the back of the net, courtesy Dominique Savio Nshuti, who capitalized on a blunder by the Taifa Stars rear to slot home from close range.

Five minutes later, misery piled on the hosts after defender Shomary Kapombe was pulled out for Boniface Maganga, after sustaining an injury that hampered his continuous stay in the game.

On 34 minutes, the homers drew level through Captain Himid Mao Mkami from the spot after Rwanda defender Aimable Rucogoza was adjudged to have handled the ball in the vital area.

The second half saw a resurgent Taifa Stars but attackers Saimon Msuva, Shiza Kichuya and John Bocco spurned goal scoring chances that came their way.

Amavubi goalkeeper, Eric Ndayishimiye pulled off a superb save to deny Kichuya seven minutes from time, as the visitors shared the spoils with their host.

After the match, Hey was full of praise for his players. “We needed to score an away goal and we got it, now we are going to prepare for the return leg, which we will be looking to win. A draw is not a bad result as it gives us the foundation going into the second leg; we must finish the job at home.”

“We played a very tactical game, shutting out the Tanzanian midfielders, who were very quick on the counter-attack. Generally, I was impressed by the performance of my team, despite the short time we had to prepare for the match,”

“I’m impressed with the level of our fitness. We will now focus on the few mistakes that we made and make sure we improve before the second leg,” Hey added.

The winner over the two legs will face either Uganda or South Sudan at the final round for one of the two Central-East zone slots.
