New Rwanda head coach Sellas Tetteh's quest to achieve his aim objective of qualifying for the 2012 Africa Cup of Nations finals looks herculean after the Amavubi Stars drew giants Ivory Coast.
Tetteh who agreed a two-year-deal on Friday has been tasked to qualify for the continent's flagship football event but must scale over Benin and Burundi in the Group.
He needs to finish as Group 8 leaders or one of the best three qualifiers for the tournament to be co-hosted by Equatorial Guinea and Gabon.
The 2009 Fifa Under-20 World Cup winner garnered some experience after supervising four of Ghana's matches last year during the first phase of joint Nations Cup/World Cup qualifiers.
Tetteh was Ghana's assistant coach at the 2006 Nations Cup and World Cup finals in Egypt and Germany respectively.
He was also second-in-command under Frenchman Claude Le Roy during the 2008 Africa Cup of Nations on home soil.
