Agaciro Football Champs returns today with Day two Action

Posted on Sep 13 2017

The 2017 edition of the Agaciro Football Championship resumes today with a double header set to be staged at Amahoro National Stadium.

In the first game of the day, APR Fc hosts Police Fc at 15:30 with APR head coach Jimmy Mulisa seeking to secure his second win of the championship.

APR Fc beat AS Kigali 2-0 in the first match thanks to first half goals from forwards Maxime Sekamana in the 12th minute and Issa Bigirimana in the 34th minute.

Speaking to local media, Mulisa said, “Our focus now is on all games we have ahead of us, but first we need three points against Police. We need to provide good display and build winning mentality in our team, so it must start from this competition,”

His counterpart, Coach Seninga Innocent who lost the first game to Rayon Sports is determined to avoid a repeat against APR Fc. Rayon Sports beat Police 1-0, thanks to the lone goal from defender Gabriel Mugabo in the 74th minute with powerful header off Pierrot Kwizera’s corner kick on Saturday.

“We have two remaining games, which we want to win. We have the winning spirit and we are physically fit, technically my players are better but holding up for ninety minutes has been a problem, so I am working on that,” Seninga said.

The second game of the day due at 18:00 will pit AS Kigali who will be up against league champions, Rayon Sports Fc.

AS Kigali head coach Eric Nshimiyimana has tipped his players to settle for nothing less than the win.

“It may be a pre-season tournament, but it is very important and my players need to understand well my ambitions. We need to work hard for the game against Rayon Sports. I have told the players that we need to win the tourney, and I hope we will,” he noted.

But his counterpart at Rayon Sports Olivier Karekezi believes that he is building a team which understands his philosophy.

“We are playing these games to prepare well for the league. We are looking to strength the mentality of our players, tactically we are better but we need to adjust our way of playing,” the former APR striker said.

Agaciro Development Fund was introduced during the 2011 National Dialogue and was launched in August 2012 to build up public savings to achieve self-reliance and accelerate socio-economic development.
