Rwanda’s head coach, Torsten Frank Spitller, has revealed that he is not happy with the outcome of the 2025 Africa Cup of Nations draw that pitched his team in the same group with the Super Eagles of Nigeria.

The Amavubi were pitched in Group D with three-time African champions Nigeria, Benin Republic, and Rwanda at the draw ceremony in Johannesburg, South Africa, on Thursday.

The South Africans are also in the same World Cup qualifying group as the Super Eagles and Les Guépards (the Cheetahs) of Benin.

Spitller expressed disappointment with the outcome of the draw.

“It’s actually a little bit sad that we have two teams in the group, Nigeria and Benin, with whom we are playing in the same group in the World Cup qualifiers. But it is at it is,” the gaffer was quoted by the official website of the Rwanda Football Federation.

The qualifiers for the 2025 AFCON finals will start in September and end in November.
