“It has been a good time here and we still expect more (training) from the coaches because we are ready to go all the way,” he said.

“We are preparing very hard for the task ahead and we know what we can do if we face any team at the moment and even if you bring AC Milan now, I am sure we can withstand them,” he added.

The team will travel to Pretoria, South Africa on January 2, where they will camp and play two friendly matches against Angola and Cote d’Ivoire, before leaving for Rwanda.

They are placed in group C, with Tunisia, Niger and Guinea.

Their first game is on January 18 against Niger, at the Stade Regional Nyamirambo in Kigali.
