Rwanda Peace Cup: Rayon Sports deserved to beat APR FC – Ngendahimana

Rayon Sports midfielder Eric Ngendahimana believes his side did everything in their disposal to beat APR FC 1-0 and lift the Peace Cup at Huye Stadium on Sunday.

The Blues finally ended their four-year trophy drought as Ngendahimana scored the goal which turned out to be the winner against their bitter rivals in favour of his side, who last won a major trophy in 2019 when they claimed the league title.

“I am happy to score a winning goal but especially to win the title. All I can do is thank these teammates, this club, and these fans. We’ve achieved something hugely significant, winning the trophy after four years,” Ngendahimana said as quoted by Times Sport.

“We had to cap off a season with a trophy and that is what we did today. You can take inspiration from this, but also more confidence.”

Ngendahimana added: “It is always important to score alone in the final, I am delighted to be part of finals history, I will not forget it and even my children will see this history.”

The victory earned Rayon their 10th Peace Cup title in the club’s history, their first since 2016. Besides the trophy, the club was awarded a Rwf10 million worth of cash prize.

While Rayon will now represent Rwanda in the Caf Confederation Cup next season, league champions APR will feature in the Champions League.
