Coach Hey summons 22-man Squad for Uganda tie

Posted on Jul 30 2017

Rwanda Senior Men’s national team head coach Antoine Hey has summoned a provisional squad of 22 local based players ahead of third round tie with Uganda in the Nations for African Championship (CHAN).

Uganda will host Rwanda in the first leg clash on August 12, 2017 at St. Mary’s Kitende stadium with the reverse fixture slated for a week later in Kigali.

The aggregate winner after both legs will then advance to the 2018 Total CHAN finals that will be hosted in Kenya.

Coach Antoine Hey’s squad is comprised of five new faces namely; right-back Saddam Nyandwi, who joined Rayon Sports this month from Espoir FC and APR goalkeeper Yves Kimenyi to replace team captain Eric ‘Bakame’ Ndayishimiye, who will miss first leg because he has two yellow cards.

However, Ndayishimiye has been named in the provisional squad as Hey plans to use him for the return leg that will be played on August 19 at Kigali Stadium.

Others are; Rayon Sports centre-back Ange Mutsinzi, Police FC striker Christophe ‘Abeddy’ Biramahire and APR midfielder, Imran Nshimiyimana.

Amavubi will enter residential camp at Golden Tulip hotel in Nyamata on Monday morning before starting training later in the afternoon.

The provisional squad excludes Police FC forward Justin Mico, who sustained a knee injury against Tanzania in second leg a fortnight ago.

Rwanda eliminated Tanzania on 1-1 aggregate following a goalless draw in the second leg, while Uganda, who have just lost their head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic, knocked out South Sudan 5-1 on aggregate.

The third round winners will qualify to represent the East and Central African Zone at next year’s finals tournament, alongside hosts Kenya.

Rwanda has participated in at least two of the four different CHAN final editions. The Amavubi team missed the inaugural tournament in 2009 but went on to feature in the Sudan edition in 2011 and last year in Rwanda 2016.

Provisional Squad:
Goalkeepers:
Marcel Nzarora (Police FC), Eric ‘Bakame’ Ndayishimiye (Rayon Sports) and Yves Kimenyi (APR FC).

Defenders: Aimable Nsabimana (APR), Ange Mutsinzi (Rayon Sports), Thierry Manzi (Rayon Sports), Aimable Rucogoza (Bugesera FC), Soter Kayumba and Ratif Bishira (AS Kigali), Emmanuel Imanishimwe (APR), Saddam Nyandwi (Rayon Sports), Jean Marie Muvandimwe (Police) and Eric Iradukunda (AS Kigali).

Midfielders: Imran Nshimiyimana (APR), Djihad Bizimana (APR), Yanick Mukunzi (APR) and Oliver Niyonzima (Rayon Sports)

Forwards: Innocent Nshuti (APR), Barnabé Mubumbyi and Dominique Savio Nshuti (AS Kigali), Christophe Biramahire (Police FC) and Kevin Muhire (Rayon Sports).
