Amavubi were unlucky, says Kayiranga

Rwanda assistant coach Jean Baptista Kayiranga believes the Amavubi Stars were good enough for victory over Uganda Cranes on Saturday.

The two played out a goalless draw at Namboole in a friendly meant to gear them up for the upcoming Cecafa in Nairobi in two weeks time.

It was a game of two halves with the hosts having a better first half and visitors enjoying a lion’s share of possession and chances after recess. And Kayiranga rues the missed opportunity.

“It was a tough game,” he says, adding, “The story has been Uganda beating us all the time (in recent times) but today we managed to get a draw.

“For us this has been a very good way to prepare for Cecafa and now we know where we need to improve.

“In the first half it was tough but in the second half we came back and showed that we are better. We were also unlucky because we created many scoring chances. We need more training between now and Cecafa.”

Uganda and Rwanda are grouped together in Pool C of Cecafa, with Sudan and Eritrea the other teams.
