Rwanda National Team Head Coach, Antoine Hey is confident that his side has regained enough confidence to knock out the Cranes when they face off in the 2018 African Nations Championship (CHAN) over two legs.
Speaking after the team’s friendly victory with Sudan, Hey told Rwandese New Times that the team is now ready to rumble: “All in all, it was a good test and it gave the players a lot of confidence. We have a couple of more training sessions before we play Uganda. We hope for a good result on Saturday,”
“The game has given us a clear picture of the kind of players to use for the Uganda game and we hope the experience picked here will be beneficial in our third round qualifier against Uganda,”
Sources in Rwanda have it that Rwanda team will head to Uganda on Thursday for Saturday’s clash at St. Mary’s Kitende before a return leg in Kigali.
It is to be noted that this Uganda-Rwanda rivalry has seen the Pearl of Africa win 14 times, while Kagame’s Amavubi Stars won ten times.
