Amavubi extinguish the Flames



Rwanda beat Malawi 2-0 in a highly entertaining clash staged at Mandela National Stadium, Namboole on Monday.

Amavubi made their intentions clear in the game with Emery Bayisenge going forward but his cross was cut out for a corner.

They went ahead after a moment of sheer brilliance from Jimmy Mbaraga whose pass found Jean Baptiste Mugiraneza who lashed the ball into the back of the net to give his side the lead.

Chiukwepo Mwosoya move that was initiated to find the equalizer came to an end when the linesman flagged him offside in the 61st minute.

Seven minutes later, the Flames were left agitated as the referee waved played on despite their penalty appeals after Mwosoya easily went down in the area.

Mbagara will have himself to blame as he missed a free header in the 77th minute as this year’s edition guests kept them on the back foot.

Captain Haruna Niyonzima unleashed a powerful left foot shot to double the lead in the 79th minute to ensure they collected the maximum points to top their group.
