Hosts Rwanda collected a 2-1 win over Gabon in the teams' second African Nations Championship Group A match on Wednesday.

Ernest Sugira scored on either side of half-time to give the Rwandans the three points, while Aaron Salem Boupendza bagged a consolation strike for Gabon in the 55th minute.

Rwanda are a perfect two wins from two games thus far in the tournament.
