Biography[edit]

SC Kiyovu Sport[edit]

The striker began his career in 2004 with SC Kiyovu Sport and was promoted in the 2006 Rwandan Premier League team. He played his debut for SC Kiyovu Sport in June 2006.

APR FC[edit]

In December 2008, Iranzi signed with APR FC, the previous winners of the Rwandan Premier League. He made his APR FC debut in an organised friendly match against fellow league members Police FC.[2] With APR, Iranzi won the 2009-10 Rwandan Premier League, thus earning a spot in the 2011 CAF Champions League, where APR was eliminated in the Preliminary round to Club Africain of Tunisia on an aggregate score of 2-6. APR repeated as Premier League champions in 2010-11, and therefore will play in the 2012 CAF Champions League.

International career[edit]

Iranzi played the African U-20 Youth Championship in Ruanda.[3] He played his debut for the "Wasps" on 21 June 2008 in the 2010 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Morocco national football team.[4] Iranzi's first international goal came on March 26, 2011 as part of Rwanda's 2012 Africa Cup of Nations qualification campaign. The goal, scored in the 44th minute, gave Rwanda a 1-0 lead over regional rival Burundi. Rwanda went on to win the match 3-1.[5]
