Copa Coca Cola football stars camp set for Sept 8-15

Dominique Savio Nshuti and Moustafa Nsengimana, who were selected to represent Rwanda in this year’s Copa Coca Cola boot camp in Pretoria, South Africa, will depart on September 5.

Dominique Savio Nshuti and Moustafa Nsengimana, who were selected to represent Rwanda in this year’s Copa Coca Cola boot camp in Pretoria, South Africa, will depart on September 5.

Nsengimana, who plays for Rubavu-based Anglican Secondary School and Nshuti from Nyarugenge’s Groupe Scolaire Akumunigo were selected as the best two players from this year’s national Copa Coca Cola championship that was won by Anglican SS.

Rwanda School Sports Federation’s (RSSF) executive secretary Florent Rwigema told Times Sport that the two youngsters are expected to learn a lot from South Africa.

“This a rare chance for the two young talents to improve, exchange and empower themselves with the best across the continent,” the officials said recently.

He added, “In previous years, footballers, who passed through the same tournament and training camp are now playing in national football league teams, while some others in second division which is what we wish for Nsengimana and Nshuti.”

APR’s trio of Emery Bayisenge, Jacques Cyubahiro and Yannick Mukunzi are among the other Rwandan young talented players that had the exact same chance to pass through the Copa Coca Cola football stars camp in South Africa.

In 2011, Eric Uwiragiye and Pasteur Mucyo were the best two players, while Djuma Nizeyimana and Amerika Kalisa underwent the similar camp last year.

This year’s camp will take place at TUKS Sports Campus in Pretoria, South Africa from September 8 to 15.
