“Friendly matches are very important and will help us prepare better for the tournament. We are working on different tactical formations and we plan to test these in the friendlies,” says the Rwandan mentor.

The tournament is set to commence on the 16th of January till the 7th of February 2021.

Mashami’s boys assembled in to camp on Thursday, 24 December 2020.

Rwanda plays in Group C with Morocco, Uganda and Togo, and will start their campaign against Uganda, before taking on holders Morocco, and will wrap up their group matches against debutants Togo.

Since the inception of CHAN in 2009, Rwanda has missed the inaugural edition and the 2014 tournament, making its debut in 2011 before hosting the 2016 showpiece and qualifying for the upcoming 6th edition.
