Coach Antoine Hey has asserted that Rwanda is not shaken by Uganda’s stature in the region.
Uganda face Rwanda in a two legged affair to determine one of the three slots designated for the Central East zone.
July Fifa rankings placed Uganda on 74th globally while Rwanda remain below top 100, at 119 despite making eight steps up.
- We had a very difficult encounter with Tanzania and succeeded. Now we are facing Uganda who is the strongest in the region according to Fifa rankings but we are ready for the game, Hey said.
The German downplayed the challenges his team could face when playing on the natural turf at Kitende despite training and playing most of their games on astro-turf.
-We played in Tanzania on natural grass and managed a result. What we are looking for in this first leg is a good result to put everything in our own hands as we head to the return leg in front of our vibrant fans.
