Rwanda: Naby Keita On Target As Guinea Beat Rwanda in Final Warm-Up Match


Rwanda 0-2 Guinea

Liverpool star and Guinea captain, Naby Keita, was on target as his side beat Rwanda 2-0 in a friendly match at Amahoro Stadium, in Kigali, on Thursday.

It was the second match between the two countries this week, with the first encounter having ended 3-0 in favour of Rwanda on Monday.

Keita, who arrived in the country on Tuesday, missed the first game.

Mohamed Lamine Bayo opened the scoring in the 25th minute following a defensive howler by Amavubi left-back Eric Rutanga. Keita doubled the travelers' lead just nine minutes later after the Syli Nationale launched a counterattack from the midfield.

Guinea fly out to Cameroon aboard a chartered RwandAir flight on Thursday night for the rescheduled 2021 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) finals.

The Syli Nationale are in Group A along with Senegal, Zimbabwe and Malawi.
