Karekezi who features for Sweden’s top division club Helsingborg arrived Tuesday night aboard SN Brussels while Abedi and Nkunzingoma who feature for Maccabi Herzliya (Israel) and TP Mazembe (D.R.Congo) respectively jetted in yesterday morning.
Amavubi Stars’ coach Michael Nees is expected to name the final squad of 20 players for Liberia tie tomorrow. Rwanda lost their first leg tie against Liberia 2-3 in Monrovia and have a lot of homework to do this Saturday.
