On the 31st May 2014, Team Rwanda UK participated in the Ethiopian Airlines African Nations Cup UK, which opened at 9:30am that morning. H.E. Williams NKURUNZIZA, the High Commissioner for the Republic of Rwanda to the UK, gave the opening talk and it was a proud occasion for Team Rwanda UK to be represented at all levels at this competition.
The teams are usually formed of amateur (non-professional) football players, often of different ability and skill levels, representing their respective nations. Similarly, the Team Rwanda UK team consisted of a group of young (and slightly older) players with different playing abilities and from different towns and backgrounds. The team improved significantly from last year, putting on a much stronger collective display than last year. We hope to carry this momentum and positive energy forward, and we are already looking forward to next year’s tournament.
