2022 WCQ: What you need to know about Uganda Vs Rwanda game

1 min read

After winning 1-0 in Kigali, Uganda will be looking to record a second consecutive win in the 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers as they take on Rwanda on Sunday at the St Mary’s Stadium, Kitende.

The Cranes won the first clash with a 1-0 scoreline courtesy of a goal scored by Fahad Bayo.

However, Bayo and defender Isaac Muleme will need to be assessed after they were injured and subsequently substituted in the second half at Nyamirambo Stadium on Thursday.

With the win and draws against Kenya and Mali, Uganda are second in Group E with five points and the home game against Amavubi offers them a chance to look for three more points as they search for a World Cup ticket with speed.

Meanwhile, Rwanda is at the bottom with one point after an opening 1-0 loss to Mali and a 1-1 draw against Kenya.

They will enter this game under pressure especially being the away team.

Uganda however, have to make sure they are sharper in the attacking front given that they have only scored one goal in three games now.

Head coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic who returned to take charge of the team will also be keen to pick up his second win with Uganda.

Cranes midfielder Khalid Aucho will be out of this game after picking up a yellow card against Rwanda.
