Rwanda will be aiming to build on their impressive showing against Nigeria when they lock horns with Equatorial Guinea in a 2018 African Nations Championship (Chan) tournament Group C clash, at the Stade Ibn Batouta in Tangier on Friday evening.

Kick-off is at 21h00 CAT (SA, GMT+2).

Amavubi held the Super Eagles to a goalless stalemate in their Group C opener earlier this week, to the delight of head coach Antoine Hey.

The former Liberia and Kenya head coach has now set his sights on downing a wounded Nzalang Nacional outfit who suffered a 3-0 defeat to 2014 Chan champions Libya.

“I am happy with the way they fought up to the last minute; we are looking forward to continue with the same spirit in the next matches," said Hey. "Winning would have been better, but the result we got is good enough.”

“Equatorial Guinea will be a different match and we shall use a different game plan.

Hey continued: "That’s the match we are concentrating on. The Libya game is far away and depending on the results of the second match, we will see how many points and goals we need when we play against Libya in the final game or whether we need to win it or if a draw is enough.”
