We Can’t Afford a Slip Against Ethiopia, Says Rwanda Coach

Rwanda women’s team coach Marie Nyinawumuntu has cautioned Ethiopia that his team will not go for anything other than a win in their last CECAFA group B clash to be played on Wednesday.

The She Amavubi came from two goals down to draw level with Tanzania at halftime in the only game played on Monday but were unfortunate to leak in late in the game to register their first loss.

“We lost because of some mistakes in communication that led us to concede early but generally our game was not bad. This edition is a first for everyone and therefore we can only improve with time, advice ” Marie said.

Rwanda are pooled in group B alongside Ethiopia and Tanzania who won the opening game meaning every team has to play only two games unlike the four teams in pool A.

“Ethiopia’s game carries a lot of weight because it’s our final game and must win it or else we’ll be on our way back home immediately. A lot of work has to be done in the next training session to correct our mistakes before Wednesday.”

“I know very little about how Ethiopia plays as a national team but I am sure they’re a good side so the best way to deal with them is going with a winning strategy and another option to absorb their game as early enough. They haven’t played but watched our game and that makes it tricky because we have to go in well equipped, ” he added.

Match day two will host Kenya versus Burundi in the opening game while Uganda looks for their first win as they host Zanzibar in the second game.

Only two teams will qualify to the semifinals from each group
