Amavubi under no pressure for Tz return leg tie, says Rucogoza

By Mugabe

Amavubi center-back Aimable β€˜Mambo' Rucogoza has said the team is not under pressure ahead of the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) second qualification round, second leg against Tanzania on Saturday at the Kigali Stadium in Nyamirambo.

The hard-tackling Bugesera FC defender told Times Sport on Wednesday that the team is confident going into the home leg needing just a draw to progress to the third and final round where they will face either Uganda or South Sudan.

β€œWe got a good result from the first leg and with the training we're having in preparation for the second leg, I am quite positive that we're in the right position physically and mentally to eliminate Tanzania,” Rucogoza said.

The 31-year-old added, β€œOur target is to beat them. We are doing all we can to win but we know the game will even be more difficult than the first leg in Tanzania. Nonetheless, we are not under any pressure as we are going to play at home in-front of our fans and families.”

Rucogoza returned to the national team fold after six yearsβ€”the last time he featured for Amavubi was during the 2011 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup under Ghanaian coach Sellas Tetteh.

The veteran center-back started his career with Rubavu-based league side Marines FC before moving to KIST, Rayon Sports, Nyanza FC, Espoir and Gicumbi FC.

Amavubi held Taifa Stars to a 1-1 draw in the first leg played last Saturday in Mwanza. AS Kigali's new signing, Dominique Savio Nshuti put Rwanda ahead after 18 minutes before Himid Mao equalised for the hosts from the penalty spot in the 35thminute.

The winners between Rwanda and Tanzania will face either Uganda or South Sudan in the third and final qualification round next month where only eventual winners will qualify to represent the East and Central Africa Zone, alongside hosts Kenya.

South Sudan and Uganda played a goalless draw in the first leg in Juba, while the second leg will be played in Kampala this weekend.

Meanwhile, the Tanzanian delegation arrived in Kigali last evening and will stay at Sports View Hotel in Remera.

CHAN 2018: Taifa Stars arrives tonight for Amavubi return leg clash

By Mugabe

The Tanzania men's football team, Taifa Stars, arrives in the country tonight ahead of return leg first round qualifier of the Total African Nations Championships (CHAN) due on Saturday at Stade de Kigali, Nyamirambo.

The Tanzanian-outfit arrives at Kigali International airport on Wednesday night, 20h25 aboard a RwandAir flight from Kilimanjaro.

The team will stay at Sports View Hotel in Remera town for their entire duration in Kigali.

They are scheduled to train at Stade de Kigali on Thursday morning and Friday afternoon ahead of Saturday's clash with Rwanda's Amavubi stars.

Speaking to Tanzanian media, Taifa Stars head coach Salum Mayanga is assured Stars will advance despite a draw setback in the first leg clash.

Mayanga lauded players for the hard work despite failing to seal a win. He said, however, allowing visitors to score away an early goal was a grave mistake committed by the team.

β€œThe match has ended in a draw, but this is not the best result to us. My main target right now is making sure all mistakes we committed are rectified before the return away match in Rwanda,” said the coach.

He said Kigali doesn't pose threat to him and it's from there Stars will advance. He said the opponents capitalized on the mistakes committed by Stars defenders to convert an early goal.

In the first leg, 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.

To progress, Rwanda needs a goalless draw or a win to reach the last qualifying round.

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.

Amavubi resume preps ahead of Tanzania return leg

By Mugabe

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. β€œWe 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.”

β€œWe 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,”

β€œI'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.

By Mugabe

FERWAFA delegates led by President Nzamwita Vincent, Secretary General Uwamahoro Latifah Tarcille and Executive committee member Appolinaire Mpilikanyi have joined 400 other international football experts in Rabat, Morocco for a Caf African Football symposium.

The two-day event scheduled for July 18-19, 2017 at Palais des Congres (International Conference Centre Mohammed VI), Skhirat, a suburb of Rabat,is expected to form the continental blueprint for the development of the game going forward.

The will be hosted by Caf president Ahmad Ahmad who defeated Issa Hayatou for the top post in March, ending Hayatou's 29-year reign.

Also in attendance will be a FIFA delegation led by President, Gianni Infantino, and General Secretary, Fatma Samoura, who will be expected to take an active part in the symposium, which has also attracted experts from the European football governing body, UEFA.

The Amavubi coach Antoine Hey was among the invited coaches to take part in the event but due to the on-going national team engagements, he could not manage to attend the symposium which is expected to give the continent the direction on the way forward.

According to Caf, the symposium will focus on issues related to the various Caf competitions, particularly its format, periodicity and organisation.

The symposium programme includes the following seven topics, African Cup of Nations (the competition), African Cup of Nations (the host country's specifications), Interclub Competitions, Youth Football, Football and Development, Communication and Media, and Marketing and TV.

Rwanda settles for stalemate against Tanzania in Mwanza

By Mugabe

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.

Total CHAN 2018 Qualifiers: Rwanda eye win over Tanzania in Mwanza

By Mugabe

Rwanda tackles Tanzania away in the first leg of their 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) Central-east Zone, second round qualifier on Saturday afternoon at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.

The game which kicks off at 15h00 local time will be live on Azam Tv and ZBC2.

Rwanda, known as the Wasps, have appeared at two CHAN tournaments - 2011 when they were eliminated in the group stage and 2016 when they reached the quarterfinals as hosts.

The Wasps were last in action when they stumbled to a 2-1 defeat away to Central African Republic in a 2019 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier last month.

The Rwandan team delegation arrived in Mwanza on Friday. The first group of the delegation comprised of players managed to arrive in the host city in the morning but the remaining batch struggled to make it to Mwanza on time as their scheduled flight from Dar es Salaam broke down and could only be assured another flight later in the evening.

Despite all these challenges, the Antoine Hey led side will have to fully focus on today's game and ensure that their plans for this qualification round are achieved.

Speaking to local media before departure, head coach Antoine Hey said, β€œWe will go into the game looking for nothing less than a win and believe we can achieve our target and reach the next stage. We have to avoid committing any mistakes and stick to our game plan.”

β€œWe will do all we can to get a positive result in first leg. It will be a tough game but I believe in my players' ability to do a good job ahead of the second leg next week,” the German added.

Opponents, Tanzania, known as the Taifa Stars, appeared at the first CHAN tournament in the Ivory Coast in 2009, but have not qualified for the finals since. Their attempt to reach the 2016 edition ended in the preliminary round when they were beaten 4-1 on aggregate by Uganda.

The Taifa Stars come into the match having participated as a guest team at the 2017 Cosafa Cup in South Africa, where they finished top of their group and ended up winning the bronze medals.

Tanzania coach, Salum Mayanga said, β€œWe want to win both legs but we need to start it at home. I am impressed with the COSAFA achievement and I am sure that my team will play well to win.

β€œI left out the three players due to injury but others are fit to take up their places. Last week, we called up John Bocco to supplement the striking force after Mbaraka Yusuf's injury. The others will make our squad deeper and competitive,” Mayanga said.

Tanzania and Rwanda have met in 14 previous matches, according to FIFA's statistics. Each side has claimed six wins, while two matches ended in draws. The teams' most recent clash saw Rwanda win 2-0 in a friendly in Kigali in June 2015.

The return leg is set for Kigali on July 22 at Stade de Kigali. The winner will face either South Sudan or Uganda in the third round.

2018 CHAN Qualifiers: Amavubi coach looks to overcome Tanzania

By Mugabe

Rwanda senior national team head coach Antoine Hey has said that Amavubi will put up a good performance against Tanzania in the 2018 CHAN qualifiers, first leg on Saturday at CCM Kirumba Stadium in Mwanza.

The German tactician is convinced the current team is in good position to overcome Tanzania because the young players are hungry for success and to establish themselves at the highest level.

β€œEveryone in the national team is happy, the spirit is good and players are all fresh with no injuries, we are training twice a day. We know what to expect from Tanzania so we have to be well-prepared, both physically and mentally,” Hey noted.

Hey has been tasked to qualify Rwanda for the 2018 CHAN and 2019 AFCON finals tournaments in Kenya and Cameroon respectively.

Amavubi entered residential training camp on Wednesday last week. The team will depart for Mwanza on Thursday ahead of the first leg clash on Saturday, while the return leg will be staged on July 22 at Kigali Stadium in Nyamirambo.

The 46-year-old added that, β€œWe have been following how Tanzania plays and we know they are a good team. But we will try to get an away goal and then hope to eliminate them at home.”

The last time Rwanda played against Tanzania was during the 2015 CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup staged in Ethiopia, a game that Amavubi lost 1-2 in the group stage.

The winners between Rwanda and Tanzania will face either Uganda or South Sudan in the third and final qualification round due next month.

The second round winners will meet in the third round where only eventual winners will qualify to represent the Central and East Zone, alongside hosts Kenya.

The CHAN tournament, which is reserved for players who feature in their respective domestic leagues across Africa, will be staged from January 11 to February 2, 2018.
