Head coach of Rwanda national football team, Milutin ‘Micho’ Sredojovic, has described his team 0-2 loss to Nigeria’s Super Eagles on Saturday in Calabar, as a major setback in his bid to bring back his young side to reckoning in African football.
After bowing out of the qualification for 2013 Africa Nations Cup finals, the Amavubi Stars head coach has promised to put much emphasis on young players for the remaining World Cup qualifiers, which resumes next year.
Micho told Times Sport: “It is disappointing to miss out on qualifying for Africa Nations Cup finals. It is a set back, but we can take the positives from this experience.”
He added, “After this, we will need to analyse the whole squad in order to see what to do for the future of the team.”
“We need to look for young players who are eager to play for their country, players who are willing to do and give their best ahead of the next World Cup qualifier against Mali.
