Dusseldorf U18 vs Junior Wasps
FRANKFURT- Richard Tardy is expected to give one last shot to his entire squad before naming his final 21-man squad for next month’s Fifa U-17 World Cup in Mexico.
The Junior Wasps wind up their Germany training stint with a friendly against Dusseldorf’s U-18 side this afternoon.
Just like in the Koln game (3-1), Tardy will give all his players a cement their place on the team.
“They (players) know what is at stake and it is entirely up to them to prove their worth,” he said.
Marcel Nzarora is expected to make his long-awaited comeback between the posts after undergoing knee surgery last month. The shot-stopper was instrumental in Rwanda’s impressive display in the Caf U-17 Championship.
Arsenal U-16 striker Alfred Mugabo will miss the game after failing to arrive in Frankfurt on time.
After today’s tie, the team will head to Phoenix, USA on Friday where they will also hold a one-week training camp before heading to Mexico.
Rwanda is drawn in Group C alongside England, Uruguay and Canada.
