One thing that Buteera will always provide you with is goals. His development in recent years has seen him add that killer touch to his already deadly pace and skill.
At his tender age, he is already a key player for Uganda Super league club Proline Academy. He made his international debut during last year’s friendly against Tunisia and has three goals to his name.
Prior to joining Proline, Buteera featured for Kamwokya football club.
He can also play on the flanks.
Place of birth: Rubavu
Caps: 18 Goals: 2
With 18 appearances, he is one of the most capped players in the squad. His debut came last year in a friendly against Tunisia. He has a good work-rate and his never say die attitude is a strong weapon for the team. He was impressive during the Caf U-17 Championship. His aerial presence makes him dangerous in set pieces. He is also quick and can create goals.
He currently features for Amavubi academy but is definitely looking to take another step in his career in Mexico.
Place of birth: Kigali
Caps: 1 Goal: 0
Kakira started his career at Kiyovu Academy before being snatched by APR academy last year.
He made his debut in April when the Junior Wasps played against their French counterparts (the Little Blues) in Clairefontaine.
He has decent pacer and does not waste many chances.
