, Jan. 7 (Xinhua) -- The friendly match between Rwanda and Cameroon played in western Rwanda on Wednesday evening ended in 1-1 draw.
The Rwandan side kept their side of the bargain with supporters keeping morale alive after Amavubi scored in the first half at the Umuganda Stadium in the Rwandan border town of Rubavu.
Rwanda's best moment came from center back Abdul Rwatubyaye when he made header off Yannick Mukunzi's corner to score minutes to the end of first half, sending more than 5000 spectators into a jubilation.
But in hindsight perhaps a little too much was expected of the Rwandan side which has a record of losing against the Indomitable Lions.
The Cameroonians have won four times in the seven previous games between the two teams over the years.
An equalizer appeared 55 minutes into the second half by Moumi Ngamaleu.
It was unsatisfactory occasion for the Rwandan side, despite coach Johnny McKinstry making several substitutions, with the only thing worth remembering being that Amavubi dominated the game.
In second half, McKinstry substituted his players Dany Usengimana with Isaie Songa Cheap Ryan Kesler Jersey
, Hegman Ngomirakiza with Kevin Muhire and Imran Nshimiyimana with Mohamed Mushimiyimana while Faustin Usengimana replaced Abdul Rwatubyaye, following an injury.
Goalkeeper Eric Ndayishimiye was replaced by Olivier Kwizera.
The contribution by players like team captain Jacques Tuyisenge yielded nothing, to the praise of Cameroon goalkeeper Hugo Nyambe.
Speaking to journalists, McKinstry looked visibly dissatisfied, admitting that his team wasted a lot of chances.
"We created seven good chances which was enough to win the game but that's part of football Cheap Ryan Getzlaf Jersey
," he said.
He, however, expressed confidence in his team ahead of the forthcoming Africa Nations Championship (CHAN) finals tournament due January 16 to February 7 in Rwanda.
The two teams were in a warm-up game ahead of CHAN finals.
Rwanda is in Group A along with Morocco, Cote d'Ivoire, and Gabon while Cameroon is in Group B together with Angola Cheap Andrew Cogliano Jersey
, DR Congo and Ethiopia.
The stadium which hosted Wednesday's game is one of the venues for the matches, and it will host Group D games.
Meanwhile, Martin Felix Ndtoungou Mpile, the Cameroon coach, appreciated that the Rwandan team had better chances in the game.
Rwandan coach is yet to name his final squad for CHAN.

, Jan. 8 (Xinhua) -- Turkey and the Unites States continue to work out their differences on training and equipping moderate Syrian opposition forces despite recent reports that an agreement has already been hammered out between the two allies.
"I do not think we are quite there yet considering the political differences over the final goal of such a program and what would happen to Syrian president Bashar al-Assad in the end," political analyst Idris Gursoy told Xinhua in the Turkish capital of Ankara.
Turkey insists the ultimate goal should be to oust Assad from power while the U.S. says the priority is to degrade the Islamic State (IS) and finally eliminate the group.
The differences were highlighted by Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan on Wednesday in his speech in Ankara in which he criticized the U.S. and Western powers for not conducting land operations against the IS.
"They (Western powers) say we won't enter in a land war. Then we told them, if you do not enter yourselves, let's support the Free Syrian Army (FSA). They did not support the FSA," he said.
Erdogan also criticized the U.S. for airlifting weapons to the Kurdish-populated Syrian city of Ayn al-Arab Ryan Kesler Jersey
, also known as Kobane, near the Turkish border, saying that some of the weapons ended up in the hands of the IS, and others went to the Democratic Union Party (PYD), an affiliate of the outlawed Kurdish Workers' Party (PKK).
The PKK is listed as terrorist organization by Turkey Ryan Getzlaf Jersey
, the U.S. and the European Union.
Gursoy, the analyst, said Turkey and the U.S. have already agreed on the program to host the training and equipping program for moderate Syrian opposition forces but details have yet to be worked out.
That goes against Turkish media reports which, citing anonymous official sources, claimed the training is expected to start in March Andrew Cogliano Jersey
, simultaneously with similar programs in Jordan and Saudi Arabia. The aim is to train 15,000 Syrian rebels over three years.
However, U.S. officials reacted cautiously to those reports.
"I don't have any prediction on the timing of final details," said U.S. Department of State Spokesperson Jen Psaki.
On Thursday, Turkish newspaper Hurriyet Cam Fowler Jersey
, based on an unidentified official account by the U.S. Defense Department, said Turkey and the U.S. agree on the final goals of the program but are working to finalize it.
Turkey has declared since the Syrian crisis started in 2011 that its priority is to remove Assad from power.
However, Washington made it clear that the real goal is to fight with the IS rather than toppling Assad.
"We certainly expect that the moderate opposition may use their training and equipment to fight against the Assad regime," said Psaki of the State Department. "But our focus will continue to be on degrading and defeating ISIL." The United States uses the acronym of the IS's former name, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant Anaheim Ducks T-Shirts
, to refer to the terror group.
Speaking to Xinhua in Ankara, a diplomatic source also confirmed that differences between Turkey and the U.S. remain not only on the final goal of the trained groups but also on broader access to Turkish military facilities by the U.S.-led coalition against the IS.
The official, who wanted to remain anonymous, said technical teams at military and diplomatic level have been negotiating details with much ease but political differences haven't been resolved yet.
Ankara and Washington are at odds over setting up a safe zone and no-fly .
