Rwanda have been boosted by the arrivals of six foreign-based players ahead of Saturday’s 2017 Nations Cup qualifier against Ghana.
The sextet in the Amavubi training camp are defenders Emery Bayisenge (Lask Linz, Austria), Salomon Nirisarike (Sint-Truidense, Belgium), Abouba Sibomana (Gor Mahia, Kenya); midfielders Niyonzima (Young Africans, Tanzania) and Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza (Azam FC, Tanzania); and striker Quentin Rushenguziminega (Lausanne Sport, Switzerland).
