CAF CC: Nshimirimana’s header inspires Mukura VS past Free State Stars

Posted on Dec 05 2018

Rwanda’s Peace Cup holders Mukura VS registered a 1-0 win over South Africa’s Free State Stars to advance to the first round of the Total CAF Confederations Cup.

The return leg of the preliminary round game was staged at Huye Stadium in Southern Province on Wednesday afternoon.

Mukura VS earned qualification to the first round through Nshimirimana David’s 54th minute header off a cross from Ciza Hussein.

Mukura VS could have won the game with a bigger goal margin but Onesme Twizerimana, Bertrand Iradukunda and Ndayishimiye Christophe waste several chances.

Free State Stars came into the game without an appetite of finding the net as they only opted to play a defensive game.

Rwandan international goalie Kwizera Olivier started from the bench of Free State Stars as he came in with ten minutes to the end of the game replacing first choice goalie Mbambo Samkelo.

The Huye-based side who were returning to continental football for the first time since 2001 will now face the Al Hilal Ubbeid of Sudan who got a bye to the first round of the Africa’s second biggest club competition – the Total CAF Confederation Cup.

Mukura VS remains the only Rwandan side in continental football after Azam Rwanda Premier League champions APR FC were knocked out of the Total CAF Champions League following a 3-1 loss to Tunisian outfit Club Africain in Tuesday’s return leg of the preliminary round staged in Rades.
