CAF U-17 Qualifiers: Rwanda begins quest for Afcon slot

Posted on Aug 11 2018

The Rwanda Under-17 National team begins the CECAFA region of the CAF U-17 African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan on Saturday afternoon at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.

Kick-off is at 1pm local time before Tanzania takes on Burundi in the second Group A match which will be played at 4pm local time at the National stadium in Dar es Salaam.

The Coach Yves Rwasamanzi led side arrived in Dar es Salaam on Wednesday morning and they are residing at Spice Hotel in the busy Kariako town in the heart of Dar es Salaam. They have had time to acclimatize to the hot weather in the city.

Going into Saturday’s opening match, Rwanda needs to win to brighten their chances of qualifying from the tricky and tough Group A which is now comprised of four nations, the others being Sudan and Burundi. Somalia who were placed in Group A withdrew on the last minute due to unclear reasons.

Somali are the reigning champions of the CECAFA U17 Championship that took place in April this year after beating Uganda in the finals.

The qualifiers of the U17 African Cup of Nations were modified early this year, with each of the six zones (Northern Zone, Zone West A, Zone West B, Central Zone, Central East Zone, Southern Zone) playing at their backyard to produce the winners that will contest for the Cup next year.

Tanzania has a direct ticket to the tournament by virtue of being the host nation in the 2019 Afcon U17.

The Secretary-General of CECAFA Nicholas Musonye confirmed on Friday that all teams had passed the MRI tests which were done on all the players on Wednesday and Thursday this week.

CAF undertook the MRI tests in all the zonal qualifiers to avoid age cheating.
