THE Junior Wasps will now camp in Taos, New Mexico during their brief USA tour as opposed to Phoenix.
Well aware that the team’s Group games would be played in Pachuca (a high altitude city), Richard Tardy opted for Taos which has similar weather conditions to help the players acclimatize to the harsh conditions.
Rwanda is one of 24 teams contending for the 2011 Fifa U-17 World Cup slated to run from June 18-July 10.
“It’s important for players to get used to the warm conditions and the earlier they do it, the better,” he stressed.
Tardy yesterday welcomed the arrival of Arsenal U16 striker Alfred Mugabo and Belgium-based defender Jean Marie Rusingizandekwe.
Rwanda is drawn in Group C and open their campaign against England on June 19. They then play Uruguay on June 25 and Canada on June 29.
