RWANDA’S U-17 national football team will play Ghana and South Africa as part of their preparation for next year’s African Junior Championship which will be held in Kigali in January.
“Ghana and South Africa have very good junior sides so playing against them will be a good test for our boys,” Ferwafa’s vice president Raoul Gisanura said.
Meanwhile, Michelle Tardy is on the verge of becoming the new U-17 head coach. The Frenchman jets in early next week to finalise talks with the Ministry of Sports and Culture (Minispoc) and Ferwafa. Tardy has worked in Qatar and United Arab Emirates.
Patrice Lair left the post vacant last month after agreeing to coach Lyon’s women side.
Next year, Rwanda will stage the 9th Africa U-17 championship. The tournament will be held at three venues; Amahoro, Nyamirambo’s Regional stadium and Rubavu stadium.
