“As we did this year, we will also send scouts to Europe and other parts of the world to identify potential youngsters.”

Rwanda suffered an early exit in the tournament after managing one point out of a possible nine. The youngsters, who were drawn in Group C, lost to England 2-0 and Uruguay 1-0 before a goaless draw with Canada.
