Nsengayire ruled out of Caf tourney

THE Junior Wasps’ squad has been weakened following Shadad Nsengayire’s ankle injury. The midfielder damaged the ankle during Wednesday’s training session at Nyamirambo’s Regional stadium and after yesterday’s scan at King Faisal hospital, it has been confirmed that the player faces a length spell on the sidelines. 

The team coach Richard Tardy was disappointed with the news saying, “It’s a major blow for us. He is a very important player for the team and it is always difficult to replace such players.”

Rwanda open their U-17 Africa Nations Cup campaign tomorrow when they play Burkina Faso at Amahoro stadium. With Egypt and Senegal the other contenders in Group A, Rwanda have to finish inside the top two to qualify for the U-17 Fifa World Cup which will be held in June and July in Mexico.
