A Rwandan cultural troupe paid a surprise visit to Arsenal Football club’s training ground, London Colney—in Hertfordshire, and performed to a cheerful group of players and the coaching staff yesterday, the club said today.

Arsenal stars—in training—were caught by surprise by the drummers before joining the dancers in jubilation.  

“It was just a normal day at training...and then this happened. Thanks for coming to see us, @visitrwanda_now,” Arsenal FC tweeted.

 

Visit Rwanda said in a tweet that; “On Tuesday we surprised @Arsenal at training with a band of traditional drummers and dancers to celebrate the launch of the partnership and give the players a taste of Rwanda,”

“We are here to surprise the Arsenal team with the performance of Intore dance from Rwanda.” One of the Intore dancers said in a video, which was circulated on social media platforms.

“Intore literally means “the Chosen best of the best”. The dance symbolises pride and the chant is the call for victory, he explained.
