Rwanda international striker Dady Birori, also known as Tady Agiti Etekiama, will not play for the national team again, according to Rwanda Football Federation vice president Vedaste Kayiranga.

Kayingana said: “We will never call him again; a decision has been taken never to use such players because we have learned from his (Birori) case.”

Striker Birori/Tady Agiti Etekiama has been banned indefinitely from football by African Football Confederation (Caf), who also disqualified Rwanda from the 2015 Africa Cup of Nations qualifiers-Morocco.

Caf turned down Rwanda’s appeal against the disqualification from the group stage qualifiers that commences on September 5.

Birori, who was born in Kinshasa on December 12, 1986 received his Rwandan nationality in 2009 but also got a Congolese passport last year that indicates that he was born on December 13, 1990.

He scored a hat trick against Libya in the first round return leg match in Kigali in May after the North African side had won the game 2-0 in the first leg played in Tunis. The 27-year-old has made 19 appearances for Amavubi, scoring six goals.
