Nothing less than three points acceptable in East African WCQ meeting between Rwanda and Uganda in Kigali

Uganda have two points from their opening two FIFA World Cup qualifying games, but the Cranes have scored zero goals and another goalless performance will be unacceptable for them as they need three points in their road matchup against Rwanda on Thursday. Hired ahead of the campaign, gaffer Milutin “Micho” Sredojevic stated his expectation of maximum points from both matchups in the doubleheader to end a nine-match winless streak going back to January, with Uganda having the edge in their recent history against the Amavubi having won three of the last five matchups. With captain Emmanuel Okwi left out of the squad due to his status as a free agent without a club, Kawowo focuses on Yunus Sentamu as the likely candidate to be tasked with providing the goals in their article on the potential key matchups in the game.

Rwanda have only one point from their opening two games and failing to win at home on Thursday will make their elimination from qualifying contention all but a certainty. Manager Vincent Mashami acknowledged this fact in pre-match comments and stated that finding the goal is a requirement for the Amavubi.
