Rwanda national team coach Vincent Mashami has demanded more from his charges after they played to a goalless draw with Cameroon in Yaounde on Monday.
The two teams were using the match as part of their preparations for the upcoming African Nations Championship set for Cameroon from April 4 to25.
Mashami observed that Amavubi frontline was nervous and made decisions that cost them scoring opportunities.
“There was a bit of nervousness in the final third of the pitch because the strikers were eager to make an impression by scoring but I cannot fault them much because it is the first friendly against a Cameroon side that has already played four international friendlies,” Mashami told Rwandan newspaper New Times.
He, however, added that the objective of the friendly tie was not to win but refine on team tactics as well as craft a winning combination ahead of the tournament. The team is set to host Congo-Brazzaville in another friendly tie in Kigali on Friday.
Rwanda was drawn in Pool C alongside defending champions Morocco, rivals Uganda and debutants Togo. They kick off their campaign on April 6 against Uganda at Stade Reunification in Douala.
