Rwanda Amavubi Stars and Kenya Harambee Stars meet on Matchday two in Group of the 2022 FIFA World Cup Qualifiers in Kigali.

Rwanda will be hoping to get off the mark after a false start away to Mali – The side lost 1-0 to the Eagles thanks to a strike from Adam Traore in the 19th minute.

“Winning the game will give us more chances, and we have started thinking and planning how we can win the game but we can not share our game plan with anyone,” said Vincent Mashami, Rwanda coach, as quoted by The New Times.

Kenya on the other hand, were held to a goalless draw by Uganda Cranes to start their campaign with a point at Nyayo.

Coach Jacob Mulee expressed readiness ahead of Sunday’s clash: “We are ready to play against Rwanda’s Amavubi tomorrow and the goal we hope to achieve is to attain a positive result.”

“I believe we are ready as a team to face Rwanda and hopefully we will be able to get all three points.

The Harambee Stars will be banking on Qatari based striker Michael Olunga to cause Rwanda all sorts of problems.

In the same group, Uganda host leaders Mali on Monday at St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.
