Congo DR today beat the Atlas of Morocco by 1-0 in their Group C opener today. Junior Kabananga stroke just 10 minutes into the second half, but Morocco didn’t do much to threaten Congo DR as they didn’t create enough scoring chances.
This victory comes after the Central Africans refused to train after a row in camp concerning some unpaid bonuses. The Victory ended on a bitter note when Lomalisa Mutambala was sent off after being shown a second yellow in the 82nd minute, but the Moroccans failed to Capitalise on their numerical advantage.
Now Congo will meet the Ivory coast in four days time in a titanic encounter whiles the Atlas of Morocco will meet the hawks of Togo later that same day.
