    We have to watch this guy carfully, our group is underated but I feel we have the toughest group, as no one seems to be talking about DRC, and to me they psoe a bigger threat than even mali, this guy is joint top scorer in this years champ league and its by no fluke he has been scoring goals for fun for the past 3 seasons and will be a big danger alongside Tresor Mputu, We have to be careful!!!

    They are all mind games…. Dr congo is tough team to beat and they are not minnows…. they are also powerhouse but took a tumble because of the war but i bet anyone,we underrate them at our own peril!! We have to have them with full arsenals!! Viva the revolutioncioooooooo!!!

      Exact strategy Zambians used against us. Akwasi Appiah shouldn’t believe a THING anyone says but seriously take every match as the finals.
      As a matter of fact we need Quincy to open up defenders.
