2026 World Cup Qualifier: Rwanda Appoint New Coach For Nigeria, Others


Ahead of 2026 World Cup qualifier that will commence in mid-November, Rwanda Football Association has appointed Torsten Frank Spittler as the head coach of the Amavubi.

Spittler succeeded Spanish gaffer Carlos Alos Ferrer who resigned from his duties in August to take up the Belarusian national team job.

He agreed to coach the team on a one-year deal.

“FERWAFA is pleased to announce that Mr Torsten Spittler Frank has been appointed as the new head coach of men’s Rwanda national team,” the federation said in a statement released on Wednesday.

Spittler’s immediate assignment will be the 2026 World Cup double header against Zimbabwe and South Africa which are both due in November.

Apart from South Africa and Zimbabwe, Rwanda will also face Nigeria, Benin and Lesotho in the group.
