Mitcho leads Rwanda to CECAFA Cup quarter-finals

Dar es Salaam, Tanzania – Former St. George and Al Hilal (Sudan) coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic  led  Rwandan  to the CECAFA Cup quarter-finals after his team beat Zimbabwe 2-0 here today.

The Wasps qualify from Group A with six points from their opening two games.

“We don’t care who our opponents will be in the quarter-finals – we have our targets set,” said new Rwanda coach Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojevic to the BBC.

Rwanda’s goals came from Meddie Kegere who opened the scoring midway through the first half before wrapping up the win nine minutes from time.

In Tuesday’s late game, Djibouti takes on host nation Tanzania.

Rwanda are yet to concede a goal in the competition, having beaten Tanzania, who are the defending champions, 1-0 in their opening game.

The bright start is encouraging for Sredojevic, who took charge of Rwanda earlier this month.

“We are in the process of rebuilding, we are working very hard and when you work hard you get the results,” said a man who guided Al Hilal of Sudan to the semi-finals of this year’s Champions League.

Teams finishing in the top two of the three groups at the CECAFA Cup qualify for the quarter-finals – as do the two best third-placed teams.
