Mukura Victory Sports club from Rwanda has a slim chance of making it to group stage of CAF Confederations Cup after last week’s 3-0 defeat by Sudanese Al Hilal in Khartoum .But Mukura’s head coach Francis Haringingo and players believe the struggle is not yet over and they hope they can beat Sudanese outfit with same goals or even more.
Mukura welcome Al Hilal at Huye Studium in a return and final leg of CAF Confederations cup playoffs round and they are keen to see their home ground advantage carry them past their fellow CECAFA rivals.
“Every one knows we are obviously out but I call upon the supporters to come in numbers and support us , we are totally focused on this game and we fully understand that we can cause them problems and score three or more goals past them” said Haringingo
Rwanda Peace cup holders eliminated Hilal Obeyed in penalties to advance to this stage though they didn’t win any match with both encounters ending in goalless draws . They won by 5-4 in penalties.
They are appearing for the first time in eighteen years , the last time they participated was in 2000 and they were eliminated by Awassa city of Ethiopia . Mukura is the only club that is still carrying Rwanda’s hope in CAF club competitions.
On the other hand ,Al Hilal is striving to make back to back appearances in CAF Confederations cup group stages.
