CAF U-23 Qualifiers: Rwanda, DR Congo share spoils

By Mugabe

Hosts Rwanda were held to a goalless draw by DR Congo in the first leg, first round qualifiers of the 2019 Africa U-23 Cup of Nations.

The entertaining encounter was staged on Wednesday at Stade Umuganda in Rubavu District.

The two neighbours were pitted against each other in the first round of the ongoing qualifiers for the 2019 Africa U23 Cup of Nations finals due in August next year, in Egypt.

Considering that Jimmy Mulisa's youthful side had less than a week together in camp and did not play a single friendly match, they played well but fell short when it came to breaking down their opponents' defense and finding the target.

The Amavubi Olympic team started the better side but not long before the Congolese side took control of the game in the first half.

APR forward Lague Byiringiro and his former club teammate Innocent Nshuti started upfront but the duo's impact was noticeably below par.

The visitors, through Jackson Muleka, had two clear chances to take the lead but his effort in the 37th minute, and two minutes later, went wide.

Rwanda made two significant attempts through skipper Dominique Savio Nshuti and Innocent Nshuti in the first half but none was able to put the hosts ahead.

In the 50th minute, DR Congo forward Muleka almost broke the deadlock but his would-be fabulous finish was cleared by Rayon Sports centre-back Ange Mustinzi.

Later in the game, Mulisa made three changes to reinforce his attack as Abeddy Biramahire came on for Innocent Nshuti, Patrick Mugisha for Byiringiro and Samuel Gueulette for Djabel Manishimwe, but the replacements didn't produce any notable threat against a well-composed Guy Busaka's side.

Following Wednesday's home draw, Rwanda will have an uphill task in the decisive clash when they take on DR Congo in Kinshasa next Wednesday.

The winner will face Morocco in the penultimate round in March 2019.

Stakes high as Rwanda host DRC in AFCON U-23 clash

By Mugabe

Head coach Jimmy Mulisa will be desperate for home victory when Rwanda U-23 host their counterparts of DR Congo on Wednesday afternoon at Umuganda Stadium, in Rubavu District.

The two neighbours face off in the first-leg clash of the first round in qualifiers of the 2019 Africa U23 Cup of Nations finals due in Egypt, in August.

The stakes are high for either side as they are both looking to advance to the penultimate round where the winner over the two-legged tie will meet Morocco in March next year.

Mulisa has vowed that his boys are ready ‘to do the needful' to earn a win in the first-leg before traveling to Kinshasa for the decisive encounter next week.

“We are ready for the challenge, and we will give our best in order to get a big win ahead of the return-leg in Kinshasa. The game is going to be tough on both sides, but the boys are in upbeat mood and want to make the most of home advantage,” said Mulisa.

He added: “We know we are facing a relatively strong side, but we have prepared accordingly. Going into the game with an underdog tag puts us in a good position to prove otherwise.”

The DR Congo head coach, Guy Busaka, said that his side had enough time to prepare and study their opponents.

“We know Rwanda and are aware of their strengths. We must avoid unnecessary mistakes in defence and utilise well every our goal opportunities. Thankfully, we will host the return-leg, if we do well at Umuganda Stadium, chances to make it to the next stage will be high,” Busaka said.

The third and final round of qualifiers will be held in June next year.

The tournament, slated for November 8-22 2019 in Egypt, will determine three teams that will represent Africa at the 2020 Summer Olympics in Japan.

This will be the 3rd edition of Africa U-23 Cup of Nations.

Big first leg win against DR Congo is crucial – Nshuti

By Mugabe

RWANDA'S U23 football team captain, Dominique Savio Nshuti, has appealed to fans to turn up in big numbers when the team take on DR Congo in the first round of the 2019 Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers next week at Umuganda Stadium.

Jimmy Mulisa's side will host their counterparts of DR Congo in the first-leg on November 14 at Umuganda Stadium, a week before the latter welcomes the Olympic Amavubi contingent to Kinshaka in the return-leg clash.

Nshuti, also a former captain for the national U-17 and U-20 teams, has urged his teammates to take the first-leg as a do-or-die affair, and challenged them to look for “not just a win, but, an emphatic win” as they expect a hostile atmosphere in the second-leg.

“We are the new generation, a group of young players who have played together – or against each other – for the last few years. The talent and determination to deliver is there, we should score as many goals as possible and avoid conceding”, Nshuti said on Wednesday.

The Rwanda U23 coach Jimmy Mulisa is confident that his side can eliminate neighbours DR Congo. “We want to win with a big margin in the first-leg so we can travel to Kinshasa for the second-leg game with good cushion. Almost all the boys played together in the U-17 and U-20 national teams and there is a great sense of responsibility and teamwork amongst players – qualifying for the AFCON U-23 finals tournament is possible,” noted Mulisa.

By press time, five foreign-based players had already jetted in ahead of the team's final residential camp that starts Thursday at Gorilla Hotel in Rubavu District.

The five players include; Derrick Ndahiro (SC Villa, Uganda), Samuel Gueulette (KAA Gent, Belgium), India-based central defender Aimable Nsabimana, and Tunisia-based duo of Innocent Nshuti (Stade Tunisien) and Abeddy Biramahire (CS Sfaxien).

The rest of the summoned players will join camp after the climax of match day five of the Azam Rwanda Premier League which climaxes on Thursday.

The winner between Rwanda and DR Congo will face Morocco in the second round Virgire which will be played in March next year.

The third edition of the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations is scheduled for November 8-22, 2019 in Egypt.

The tournament will determine three African teams that will represent the continent at the 2020 Summer Olympics men's football tournament in Japan.

Gicumbi FC host Amagaju FC in search for first win

By Mugabe

GICUMBI head coach Abdul ‘Bekeni' Bizimana and his side will be hoping to register their first Azam Rwanda Premier League win this season when they host Amagaju on Wednesday afternoon in Gicumbi District.

The topflight league will take a two-week break for international football this week after five games. Having drawn one game and lost three, Gicumbi are without a victory after four match rounds into the 2018-19 season.

With pressure mounting on the former Etincelles coach, Bizimana has stressed that his focus is on turning the team's performances around following a poor run of results in the early stages of the domestic football league.

“It's been quite a disappointing start for us, but we are ready to fight and turn this situation around. There is always pressure in such situations, but the willingness to work and the character in players is there, and that's the most important thing,” Bizimana said on Tuesday.

It will be a clash of two struggling sides as bottom side Gicumbi take on Amagaju – both having only picked only one point from a possible 12 points.

In another match-day 5 encounter on Wednesday, SC Kiyovu play away to Sunrise at Nyagatare grounds.

League action will continue on Thursday with four games on the menu as Rayon Sports will be hosting Bugesera FC at Kigali Stadium, Espoir facing Kirehe, AS Muhanga squaring off with Marines while Police will be up against Musanze.

APR stretch winning run, Mukura drop points for first time

In the meantime, defending champions APR eased past Etincelles in a 2-0 victory at Umuganda Stadium on Tuesday to stretch their perfect start to five wins in a row.

On the other hand, Peace Cup holders Mukura shared goalless spoils with AS Kigali to drop points for the first time this season.

CAF U-23 Qualifiers: Rwandan foreign-based quartet join camp ahead of DR Congo tie

By Mugabe

Four foreign-based Rwandan players joined the National U-23 Team camp over the weekend ahead of the next week's first round of the 2019 Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifier against DR Congo.

Rwanda hosts DR Congo in the first leg of the continental Under-23 qualifiers which will be played on November 14, 2018 at Stade Umuganda in Rubavu District while the return leg will be staged on November 20 in Kinshasa.

Foreign-based players who joined camp over the weekend include; Samuel Gueulette (KAA Gent, Belgium), India-based centre-back Aimable Nsabimana, Tunisia-based duo of Innocent Nshuti (Stade Tunisien) and Abeddy Biramahire (CS Sfaxien).

The rest of the local based players who feature with the Azam Rwanda Premier League clubs will join the national team after match day six engagement which will be played between November 6-8, 2018.

Some of the players already in camp travel to Rubavu District this afternoon to begin preparations. The team will be residing at Gorilla Hotel in Rubavu District.

The Rwanda U23 coach Jimmy Mulisa is confident that his side can eliminate neighbours DR Congo in the upcoming first round of the 2019 Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

“The word ‘impossible' doesn't exist in football dictionary, we are preparing for the DR Congo games with ambition to advance to the second round. We know we are facing a strong opponent, but we are equally a good team too. We should not underrate ourselves,” Mulisa told journalists recently.

The winner between Rwanda and DR Congo will take on Morocco in the second round which will be played in March next year. The successful side will proceed to the third and final round which will be staged in June.

The third edition of the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations is scheduled for November 8-22, 2019 in Egypt. The tournament will determine three African teams to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics men's football tournament in Japan.

Old rivalry reignited as Kiyovu host Mukura

By Mugabe

SC Kiyovu and Mukura Victory Sports lock horns at Mumena Stadium on Saturday afternoon in one of the oldest football rivalries in Rwanda.

Kiyovu will go into the match with a big task at hand to maintain their fairly good start to the new 2018/2019 season having won two and drawn one game after three match rounds.

On the other hand, high-flying Mukura who have won all their first three Azam Rwanda Premier League games, are also optimistic to stretch their winning streak to four victories in a row, in what would mark their best start to a season in over two decades.

“This is a big and important match for us and our fans, and we have prepared for it in the best way possible. Our goal is to get the three points and remain the pacemakers,” Mukura head coach, Francis Haringingo, said on Friday.

Huye-based Mukura were founded in 1963, a year before the establishment of the Nyamirambo-based Kiyovu. The latter remain the only Rwandan football club to go a whole season unbeaten – during the 1990 season.

In a separate interview, Kiyovu assistant coach Djabil Mutarambirwa said: “We are ready, and we will fight with all we got to win the game. Mukura have always proved to be strong opponents, and Saturday will be no exception. However, our players understand the challenge at hand.”

Last season, both sides played out a 1-1 draw in the first-leg before Kiyovu edged Mukura 1-0 in the return-leg.

Elsewhere on Saturday, table leaders APR travel to Umuganda Stadium to face Marines FC while AS Kigali will be up against Etincelles at Kigali Stadium.

Action will continue on Sunday with two league games on the menu when hopefuls Rayon Sports host Gicumbi at Kigali Stadium whereas Bugesera and Sunrise will be facing off at Nyamata grounds in Bugesera District.

Amavubi can eliminate DR Congo, says Mulisa

By Mugabe

Rwanda U23 coach Jimmy Mulisa is confident that his side can eliminate neighbours DR Congo in the upcoming first round of the 2019 Total U-23 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers.

The first leg clash of the two-legged tie between U23 Amavubi and their DR Congo counterparts is slated for November 14 at Umuganda, in Rubavu District, one week before the return-leg in Kinshasa.

“The word ‘impossible' doesn't exist in football dictionary, we are preparing for the DR Congo games with ambition to advance to the second round. We know we are facing a strong opponent, but we are equally a good team too. We should not underrate ourselves,” Mulisa told journalists at the headquarters of Rwanda Football Association in Remera on Monday afternoon.

The Amavubi Olympic team entered residential camp at Hilltop Hotel for intensive preparations on Sunday before holding their first training session on Monday at Kigali Stadium.

It is expected that the team will train in Kigali until November 8 when they will head to Rubavu to acclimatise just before the first-leg clash.

The winners between Rwanda and DR Congo will take on Morocco in the second round which will be played in March next year. The successful side will proceed to the third and final round which will be staged in June.

APR winger Dominique Savio Nshuti has been named captain of the team.

The third edition of the Africa U-23 Cup of Nations is scheduled for November 8-22, 2018 in Egypt. The tournament will determine three African teams to compete at the 2020 Summer Olympics men's football tournament in Japan.

ARPL: APR, Mukura seek to stretch winning streak

By Mugabe

APR FC and Mukura VS will be looking to keep up their winning run when they face Kirehe and Bugesera, respectively, on Wednesday afternoon in the 2018/2018 Azam Rwanda Premier league.

After two match rounds in the new campaign, only the two sides are yet to drop points.

APR host Kirehe FC at Kigali Stadium while Francis Haringingo's Mukura Victory Sports welcome Bugesera FC to Huye Stadium.

The two games get underway at 3:30pm.

In what is guaranteed to be a clash of egos between Mukura and Bugesera, the two league rivals will be fighting to stretch their unbeaten record this season. Mukura have collected maximum points from their first two games while Bugesera won once and recorded one draw.

An away victory against Mukura would propel Innocent Seninga's Bugesera to top four.

“After defying odds to beat Rayon Sports at home, the motivation has never been higher in the team. It boosted the morale and confidence of players, which is very important.

We want to keep winning and we know what it takes – determination and work hard,” Mukura coach Haringongo told Times Sport on Tuesday.

On the other hand, Bugesera head coach Seninga has warned that his side – who are fresh from beating Etincelles – will give Mukura hard time.

He said: “We are traveling to Huye Stadium for three points, not a draw or to lose honourably. Mukura have proved they are capable of upsetting any opponent, so we can't afford to take anything for granted. The players understand well the magnitude of the task at hand.”

Leaders APR take on Kirehe with hope to keep hold of the first place ahead of their match-day 4 away encounter against Marines FC at Umuganda Stadium.

The military side beat Amagaju and Musanze in identical 2-0 victories, in their first two games.

“We need to pick up momentum from the last two games and aim not to drop points. This game (against Kirehe) is not going to be easy, they are a tricky side, but we have showed there is nothing that can stop us when we execute our game plan,” APR coach Ljubomir Petrovic said in a separate interview.

The black and white outfit's attack will be led by Player of the Year Muhadjiri Hakizimana and forward Dominique Savio Nshuti whose clinical performances have seen their names on the score-sheet in each of APR's first two games.

Elsewhere on Wednesday, Marines host AS Kigali while Rayon Sports will be up against Sunrise FC at Nyagatare grounds on Thursday.

Mukura VS stun Rayon Sports to maintain perfect start

By Mugabe

Rayon Sports conceded two first-half goals as Mukura VS maintained their perfect start in the 2018/2019 Azam Rwanda Premier League with a 2-1 win at Kigali Stadium on Sunday.

New signing from Amagaju Innocent Ndizeye scored both goals before skipper Thierry Manzi netted the consolation goal for the hosts.

Forward Ndizeye opened the scoring in the 27th minute, resulting from Yannick Mukunzi's failure to clear the ball, before doubling the lead five minutes later.

Burundian striker Bonfils Caleb Bimenyimana had a chance to find an equalizer two minutes after Ndayizeye's opener but his effort was saved by in-form goalkeeper Omar Rwabugiri.

After several squandered opportunities, Manzi finally scored for Rayon Sports with a magnificent header from Djabel Manishimwe's corner in the 50th minute.

After two match rounds, only the defending champions APR and Peace Cup holders Mukura are yet to drop points. AS Muhanga, SC Kiyovu, Bugesera, Sunrise and Rayon Sports have four points each, having recorded one win and one draw.

This was Mukura's second victory over Roberto Oliveira's side in the last two months, having edged The Blues 3-1 in penalty shoot-outs to lift the Peace Cup title in August.
