Mulisa names final 18-man squad to face Ghana

Interim Rwanda coach Jimmy Mulisa omitted five players from his squad before settling on 18 players to face Ghana on Saturday in the final Group H AFCON qualifier at the Accra Sports Stadium.

Among those dropped include Mukura forward Yussuf Habimana, APR winger Fiston Nkezingabo, AS Kigali defender Eric Iradukunda, APR central defender, Aimable Nsabimana, and SC Kiyovu goalkeeper Bonheur Hategekimana.

Foreign-based players who joined the team for the Ghana tie include the Tanzania-based duo of Amavubi captain Haruna Niyonzima (Yanga) and Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza (Azam FC), as well as Kenya’s Gor Mahia striker Jacques Tuyisenge and Ernest Sugira (AS Vita Club, DR Congo).

Rwanda will be seeking to avenge the 1-0 defeat they suffered at home in September last year.
