In advance of the two teams’ World Cup qualifying match this Wednesday, Rwanda’s coach Torsten Frank Spittler has acknowledged he has no idea what to anticipate from Zimbabwe.
Rwanda will host Zimbabwe at Huye Stadium in its first international game since FIFA lifted its ban on the Southern African nation on July 10.
Spitter believes the Warriors, who are currently coached by Portuguese-born Brazilian Baltemar Brito, are very unpredictable because of their extended absence from the international football scene.
“There is less current information on Zimbabwe ahead of the game because they have been inactive and were banned by FIFA for a year or so,” Spittler told the Rwandan newspaper Times Sport.
“We can’t depend on their historical data because it will be erroneous. “They have returned from suspension and are currently reorganizing, so we are unsure of their team composition and skill level,” he added.
Spittler takes over for Spanish coach Carlos Alos Ferrer, who left his position in August to take a coaching position with the Belarus national team.
Spittler agreed to coach the team on a one-year deal.
