Rwanda decimate Seychelles to cruise into FIFA WCQ’s Group Phase

Posted on Sep 10 2019

Rwanda’s Amavubi sailed to the group phase of the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers after thrashing Seychelles 7-0 on the night and 10-0 on aggregate at the Stade Nyamirambo in Kigali on Tuesday night.

The win was the highest score in the preliminary round of qualification across Africa. Having won 3-0 away from home in the first leg, Rwanda were the hot favorites in the return tie on home turf.

A brace each from skipper Jacques Tuyisenge and Meddie Kagere topped up individual strikes from Yannick Mukunzi, Djihad Bizimana and Muhadjiri Hakizimana as the Mashami Vincent’s coached side romped through.

Bizimana sent the Amavubi on with a well struck effort off Hakizimana’s training ground routine corner after 16 minutes. Kagere and Tuyisenge sent Rwanda 3-0 up in a space of three minutes in the 27th and 30 minutes, each making the most of defensive errors.

Tuyisenge then made it 4-0 with his second of the night with a first time volley off a Fitina Omborenga cross to take Amavubi firmly in control.

The Amavubi finished the job in the second half, Kagere completing his brace with a simple tap in before Mukunzi headed them 6-0 up, scoring in similar fashion like he did in the first leg.

The impressive Hakizimana also notched one for self with a neat finish from close range.

Victory sealed Rwanda’s place in the group stages, while Seychelles were left picking up the pieces once more.

Eslewhere, Mozambique also progressed to the group phase of the qualifiers with a 3-0 aggregate win over Mauritius after a 2-0 win in Maputo. Goals from Clesio Bauque and Geny Catamo from the penalty spot saw the Mambas book a slot in the next round.

In Luanda, Angola went through 3-1 on aggregate against Gambia after beating the Scorpions 2-1 on the night. Fabio Abreu struck the winner in the 68th minute, just three minutes after Assane Ceesay had taken Gambia level.

Geraldo had taken Angola 1-0 up and 2-0 on aggregate with a 41st minute goal.

In Lome, Togo went through after a 2-0 victory over Comoros. An own goal from Kassim M’Dahoma set Togo on with Gilles Sunu stepping off the bench to score a 71st minute second.
