Rwanda falls to Mozambique, focus switched to Cameroon tie on Sunday

By Mugabe

Rwanda senior men's football team endured a poor start to the 2021 Total African Cup of Nations Qualifying phase following a 0-2 loss to the Mambas of Mozambique in the opening match of Group F played on Thursday night at EstΓ‘dio do Zimpeto in Maputo.

Edson Sitoe broke the deadlock for the Mozambicans from the penalty spot in the 28th minute to give the home fans a huge reason to celebrate.

It was soon 2-0 to the Mambas just after the half-hour mark when Edson Mexer hit the back much to the delight of the home crowd.

The Amavubi gave in a fight to get their way back into the game, but they could not hit the target despite having a few decent chances.

With the victory, the Mambas of Mozambique are at the summit of Group F with three points. The Mambas are two points ahead of Cameroon and Cape Verde who played to a goalless draw on Wednesday night.

Rwanda will now hope to bounce back at home on Sunday when they face the Indomitable Lions in Kigali while Mozambique can pull clear in the group if they get maximum points in their away trip to the Cape Verde Islands.

AFCON 2021 Qualifiers: Rwanda face Mozambique in Maputo

By Mugabe

HARUNA Niyonzima, the national football team skipper, has challenged his teammates to β€˜give it everything' when Rwanda take on Mozambique in the two sides' first match in Group F of the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) qualifiers.

The game gets underway at 6pm CAT, in Maputo.

Rwanda beat Mozambique 1-0 in Maputo, the country's capital, during the AFCON 2017 qualifiers, and Niyonzima is optimistic that the June 2015 victory will inspire him and his teammates to fight for another win at Estadio Nacional do Zimpeto.

β€œWe have had good preparations; everyone is ready to give it their best. We won here a few years ago, but certainly we won't take anything for granted,” said Niyonzima.

After Thursday's game, Amavubi will immediately turn focus to the second qualifier against Cameroon, which Vincent Mashami's side will host at Kigali Stadium on Sunday.

β€œWe have a busy week. We have Cameroon within 72 hours after Mozambique, but right now it is very important that players focus on the task at hand,” said Mashami, the Amavubi head coach.

Mashami reckons that his players have gained a great deal of confidence given the way they played in the last couple of games in CHAN and World Cup Qualifiers, and, he believes, winning away to Mozambique is a β€˜very' possible feat.

On his team's chances of qualifying to the AFCON 2021 finals tournament, Mashami said: β€œIt is going to be a difficult journey, but I think we have a better chance now than we have had in a long time. And, qualifying is our ultimate goal.”

Cape Verde is the other member of Group F, from which the best two sides will automatically secure their tickets to the 2021 showpiece of the continent's biggest football event.

Meanwhile, the Indomitable Lions had to settle for a point in their first game of the 2021 AFCON qualifiers after being held to a scoreless draw against Cape Verde.

Rwanda has only been to the AFCON finals once, at the 2004 edition in Tunisia.
