Rwanda/Ethiopia: CHAN 2023 Qualifiers – Amavubi Coach Names Squad for Ethiopia Tie

Carlos Alòs, the head coach of the national football team, Amavubi has named a provisional squad to start preparations for the African Nations Championship (CHAN) qualifiers.

Rwanda face Ethiopia in the first-leg on August 26 in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, before they host the decisive encounter on September 3, at Huye Stadium.
