Mugunga nets on debut as Rwanda maul CAR 5-0 in soccer friendly

Kigali, Rwanda (PANA) - Rwanda proved too strong for visiting Central African Republic, as the Amavubi emerged 5-0 victorious in the second friendly between both sides at Amahoro Stadium in Kigali on Monday.

Yves Mugunga's cool finish in the first half injury time sealed a remarkable full debut for the APR striker.

Muhadjiri Hakizimana broke the deadlock after 4 minutes as the first half ended with Rwanda 2-0 up.

In the second half, Fabrice Martin Twizerimana scored twice in the 65th and 82nd minutes respectively, while Dominic Savio Nshuti also picked up his goal after 77 minutes.

Mugunga enjoyed a dream start to his international career with a goal on debut while Denis Rukundo and Christian Ishimwe also picked up their maiden Rwanda caps.

It was an accomplished performance from Vincent Mashami’s side after winning the first game 2-0 last week.

Both sides were using the match to prepare for their respective matches in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup qualifiers next September.
