AFCON Boost for Rwanda as pros arrive for Mozambique clash

Rwanda have received a boost after foreign-based players streamed into their training camp ahead of their 2023 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying fixture against Mozambique on June 18.

Former Denze midfielder Djihad Bizimana, Al Wahda striker Patrick Mutsinzi and Rukinzo FC midfielder Danny Ndikumana are among the professional players who joined local players in the camp at Hotel Portofino according to team manager Emery Kamanzi.

Amavubi have already started intensive training at Kigali Pelé Stadium under the close guidance of head coach Carlos Alos Ferrer. Meanwhile, Rayon Sports defender Didier Mucyo Junior insists he is not bothered missing out on the team’s list preparing to face the OS Mambas despite his impressive performance for the Blues.

Mucyo was one of Rayon Sports’ key players during the 2022/23 campaign in which the club won the Peace Cup besides finishing third in the league, just two points behind champions APR.

“I am confident that I will also get my chance one day so I am not perturbed. Now, I can only wish the best to the players who have been selected and the country to win the match,” Mucyo told Times Sport.

He added: “This season has been great; it went down very well for me. I will forever cherish it. Winning the Peace Cup is very valuable to me. It is a big source of motivation which I hope will only push me to work harder next season.”
