Rwanda v S. Africa
Tunisia v Kenya
Egypt v DRC
WITH fading hopes of scooping the lone ticket to this year’s Singapore Youth Olympic Games, Rwanda need nothing short of a win in today’s tie against South Africa at Cairo’s Stadium Complex.
According to reports from Cairo, Rwanda’s youngsters have the belief that they can trounce South Africa, who are yet to win a game at the competition after losing their opening three games.
A win today will ignite Rwanda’s chances of at worst finishing inside the top three. On Sunday, Paul Bitok’s side suffered their second consecutive defeat in the event after 3-1 (25-22, 23-25, 25-18, 25-19) sets victory over Kenya.
Violet Makuto and Egaly Kulove masterminded Kenya’s win in the thrilling encounter which lasted 106 minutes.
Meanwhile, Egypt kept their unbeaten run intact after thrashing South Africa 3-0 (25-16, 25-7, 25-14) while their North African rivals trounced DRC 3-0 (25-9, 25-12, 25-19) to register their second win at the event.
Currently, Egypt lead proceedings with six points, Tunisia and Kenya are tied on 5 points while Rwanda are fourth with four points.
