Good Feeling

“It feels good to be back in the Amavubi squad and to represent my country again; I will try to contribute to the best of my abilities hoping that everyone else on the team also does the same. We are a good team and have what it takes to win in Guinea.

“Morale is high in the team since landing in Guinea; we are going to keep preparing for the game, mentally and tactically. We will have to be cautious in defense and at the same time press hard for goals,” Tuyisenge said.

The team was also boosted by the arrival of Belgium based duo of center back Nirisarike Salomon (AFC Tubize) and Bizimana Djihad (Waasland-Beveren).

Sitting at the bottom of the group without a single point yet, Vincent Mashami’s men need this crucial away victory against in-form Syli Nationale to revive hopes for a ticket to the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations finals in Cameroon.

Unbeaten Guinea leads the group with six points, while Ivory and Central African Republic are second and third, respectively, with three points each.
