Venue: Bizerte

Preview:

Rwanda will leave out their captain and best-known player Desire Mbonabucya for Wednesday's Group A game against Guinea.

Mbonabucya's absence is part of an attempt to freshen a strike force that made little impression against Tunisia in the side's opening game.

Speaking exclusively to BBC Sport in Bizerte, the coach of Rwanda Radomir Dujkovic said that Mbonabucya has a slight knock.

"I need a fully-fit team that will fight like Lions," the Serb said.

Abed Saidi, who partnered Mbonabucya up front in the 2-1 defeat by Tunisia, is also dropped and the pair will be replaced by Jean Lomani and Jimmy Gatete.

"They will bring more pace and power up front and enable us to attack," the coach added.

The Wasps' other change comes in midfield where Abdul Sibomana, who is suspended following his red card against Tunisia, will be replaced by Michel Kamanzi.

Guinea are set to name the same side that came from behind to beat DR Congo in their opening game.

Veteran midfielder Abdoul Salam Sow told BBC Sport that Rwanda pose a specific problem.

"The game will be hard, because Rwanda lost their first game and know they have to win," he said.

But Salam Sow insists the players are well prepared and would draw on their experience. Five of the Guinea squad here also took part in the finals of Tunisia 94.

Yup
JLP, you are doing a wonderful job, and thank you thank you for that online link.
Man, I have a few video link sfor regular EPL games, but the one you posted takes the biscuit. (Supersport 3 from SA in case you didn't realise).
Man those guys in SA watch a lot of football.

Anyway, thanks for your regular updates and the goal links.

Guinea should have scored 4 or 5 times but they missed so many easy chances so they got to blame themselves. Titi Camara had a free kick that hit the post in the first half, then in the second half Souleymane Youla rounded Rwanda's keeper, open goal but he hits the post. Guinean goalie takes a big resposiblity for that injury time goal. Credit to Rwanda for fighting and staying in the match :)

2 points lost for Guinea, they could have secured a place in the next round by getting a win.
