"We are here to surprise the Arsenal team with the performance of Intore dance from Rwanda." One of the Intore dancers said in a video, which was circulated on social media platforms.

"Intore literally means "the Chosen best of the best". The dance symbolises pride and the chant is the call for victory, he explained.
