Rwanda: Birori Back in Amavubi Fold

Amavubi head coach Milutin 'Micho' Sredojevic has recalled Dady Birori to his squad for this year's Cecafa Tusker Senior Challenge Cup which kicks off this Saturday in Kampala, Uganda.

The striker had not featured for Amavubi in the last three matches on grounds of indiscipline but has been recalled afterr holding 'clear-the- air' talks with Micho.

"From his explanations, it's clear that there might have been a misunderstanding between him and the Amavubi team management but what's important is that the problem has been sorted out," the Serbian said.

"He will feature in the upcoming Challenge Cup. He has been in top form for his club and we hope he will replicate his form with the national team."

Last year, he played second fiddle to Olivier Karekezi and Meddie Kagere but with neither players called up for this year's edition, he is expected to lead Rwanda's attack.

Rwanda are drawn in Group C alongside Malawi, Zanzibar and Eritrea and open their campaign on November 26 against the Flames followed by clashes with Zanzibar (November 29) and Eritrea (December 1).

Group A pits the defending champions Uganda against Kenya, Ethiopia and South Sudan while Group B has 2007 champions Sudan, Tanzania, Somalia and Burundi.
