CHAN: Rwanda Edge Equatorial Guinea, Go Joint Top With Nigeria

Rwanda pipped Equatorial Guinea 1-0 in Group C of the 2018 Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) in Morocco on Friday.

The only goal of the game was scored by Thierry Manzi who headed in a corner-kick into the far left-hand corner.

Rwanda are now joint-top of Group C with the home-based Super Eagles of Nigeria on four points.

In third position are Libya on three points, while Equatorial Guinea are bottom with no points.

Rwanda’s next game is against Libya on Tuesday, while Equatorial Guinea will face Nigeria also on Tuesday.

Earlier on Friday, Sunday Faleye’s second half strike sealed a 1-0 win for Nigeria.


  • I said it that for Rwanda’s coach recognize Nigeria as a big football country superior to them and that he and his country will support Nigeria in the WC, he will qualify from the group with Nigeria. One more step on Tuesday to make that wish come true. Nigeria vs Equatorial Guinea will be intetesting. EG has being the weeping boy of this group C. Nigeria needs just a draw to reach the Qfinal. Libya vs Rwanda will be a game to watch. A draw will not help Libya but Rwanda. So Libya will fight like a severely wounded leopard. Rwanda will also defend like a mother bear. It will be a match worth watching. I wish Nigeria and Rwanda all the best.

    My heart is with Rwanda. I wish they win that match but they will be going against a very tough opposition. This is because Libya was unfortunate to loss to Nigeria. In the match against Rwanda, they must win to progress.
