Rwanda’s Amavubi Stars will play either Malawi or Tanzania away on March 26, a date for international friendly games set by the World’s football body Fifa.
The local football federation (Ferwafa) Chief Executive Officer Jules Kalisa told Times Sport yesterday that both countries had requested the local federation, Ferwafa to honor their invitations.
“We have received invitations from Malawi and Tanzania and we shall reply before the end of February,” Kalisa said.
Ferwafa has also sent invitations to Egypt and Ivory Coast ahead of their 2010 World Cup campaign which kicks off on May 31.
“If our request is granted, Amavubi Stars will play either Egypt or Ivory Coast on May 26,” Kalisa added.
These international friendly games will help to put Rwanda in shape before embarking on her 2010 Fifa World Cup/ CAN qualifiers. In the qualifiers, Rwanda is drawn against Morocco, Mauritania and Ethiopia and will start her campaign on May 31 with a home game against Mauritania.
Rwanda plays away to Ethiopia in Addis Ababa on June 7 before hosting the Atlas Lions a week later.
The Amavubi Stars will then fly to Rabat on June 21 for a return leg against the North African giants.
On September 7, the 2007 Cecafa Senior Challenge Cup losing finalists head to Nouakchott for the second leg against Mauritania before winding up the campaign at home against Ethiopia on October 12.
