The two sides will meet in international friendly to be played in Rabat few days after the Atlas Lions pulled out of hosting 2015 Orange Africa Cup of Nations due to Ebola fears.
There have been fears in the Rwandan soccer fraternity that the team will produce lacklustre performance as it is owed some game allowances that have been outstanding for three months now.
Nevertheless, Nshutiyamagara has dismissed those fears saying the issue of money is not a priority now as they have already received assurances from the country’s FA president that their allowances will be sorted out by Saturday.
He said the team was not losing sleep on the issue of the finances because previously the FA has always kept its word and met set deadlines following similar delays.
He therefore declared that the Amavubi team has set its sights on the Friday encounter to give the Atlas Lions a run for their money.
“For now we are focussing on representing Rwanda to the best of our abilities and following instructions given to us by coach [Stephen Constantine],” headed.
Team manager, Bonnie Mugabe, revealed that the players were had already informed earlier by the FA about the financial situation it was in before they were summoned for the training and the response has been good.
The money in question is from a friendly encounter against Gabon, as well as, two Africa Cup Nations home and away group stage qualifiers in July and August against Congo Brazzaville.
Rwanda though had qualified for the ongoing group stage of Africa Nations Cup qualifiers but was replaced with Congo Brazzaville on disciplinary grounds by Confederation of African Football (CAF) for fielding ineligible player-Dady Birori, who had dual identity.
Rwanda is in a campaign to build a strong team that will be able to compete during the CHAN tournament it will host in 2016, as such most of the players that Amavubi will feature against the Lions in the friendly will be rookies.
