Rwanda will be competing at their maiden African Nations Championship after failing to qualify for the 2009 event in Cote d'Ivoire.
They have an experienced tactician in the form of Ghanaian Sellas Tetteh though and have been pooled in Group D along with Senegal, Angola and Tunisia, a tough assignment.
Most of Rwanda's players come from the APR club, which led to the squad only getting togther a week before the CHAN tournament started as APR were involved in the African Champions League the weekend before.
Also in the squad are two players – Emery Bayisenge and Faustin Usengimana – who played for the Rwandan side at the recent African Under-17 Championships, which they hosted and reached the final, going down 2-1 to Burkina Faso.
