CHAN 2018 Preps: Rwanda face Sudan in Tunis

Posted on Jan 06 2018

Rwanda Men’s senior team, Amavubi, face Sudan in a friendly match on Saturday afternoon as part of preparations of the upcoming Total 2018 African Nations Championship which begin on January 13 in Casablanca, Morocco.

Kick-off to Saturday’s match is at 14:30 (15:30 Kigali) at Stade Mongi Ben Brahim Stadium.

The Amavubi team which has been holding intensive preparations in Sousse, Tunisia since Wednesday will be playing Sudan in their first friendly match in Tunisia.

Coach Antoine Hey said on Friday, “We have had six training sessions so far. Players look abit tired so we had to reduce the training intensity this afternoon (Friday).

“We are playing a first friendly match against Sudan tomorrow (Saturday) and Namibia on Sunday. Players need to get match fitness, get the rhythm then we will field another squad against Namibia on Sunday,”

“We hope that after these two matches, players will be ready for the big match against Algeria next Wednesday. Some of these players need such kind of matches to get into the needed competitive rhythm because they didn’t play regular matches like Savio and Barnabe,” added Coach Antoine.

This is the second time that Rwanda is facing Sudan in CHAN preparations. In August, 2017, Rwanda defeated Sudan 2-1 in a friendly match held in Kigali and Sudan was under the tutelage of former Sudanese coach Mohamed Abdallah Ahmed nicknamed Mazda.

On Saturday, Rwanda will be facing a Sudanese national team which is currently under former Ashante Kotoko Croatian coach Zdravko Logarusic who took over from Mazda in December, 2017.

The 55-year-old, who has worked in Ghana, Kenya, Angola and Tanzania, will lead Sudan at the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco. Sudan are in in Group A with Morocco, the second choice as hosts after Kenya fell behind with preparations, the 2016 semi-finalists Guinea and Mauritania.

Sudan edged Ethiopia 2-1 on aggregate in August to reach next year’s CHAN tournament - their second appearance at the event after staging the 2011 edition as hosts.

Rwanda is using the scheduled friendly matches in preparations for the CHAN tournament where they will face Libya, Nigeria and Equatorial Guinea in Group C whose venue is in Tanger, Morocco.

Rwanda qualified for CHAN 2018 after beating Ethiopia 3-2 on aggregate score over two legs. This is Rwanda’s third appearance in CHAN finals after 2011 and 2016.

Africa’s second biggest football tournament gathers exclusively players featuring in their respective domestic leagues. It is held once in two years since its inception in 2009 in Ivory Coast.

The Africa Nations Championship will attract Morocco, Mauritania, Guinea, Sudan, Cote d’Ivoire, Namibia, Zambia, Uganda, Libya, Equatorial Guinea, Nigeria, Rwanda, Angola, Burkina Faso, Cameroon and Congo Brazzaville.

Rwanda’s Starting Line-up against Sudan:
Eric Ndayishimiye, Iradukunda Eric, Rutanga Eric, Kayumba Soter, Manzi Thierry, Faustin Usengimana, Mukunzi Yannick, Bizimana Djihad, Imanishimwe Djabel, Mico Justin and Biramahire Abeddy
