Congo DR to arrive in SA next month



The Democratic Republic of Congo are to hold a 10-day training camp in Port Elizabeth from December 8-18 to prepare for the African Nations Cup finals, the Congolese federation has announced.

The camp will be for home-based players only, who are expected to make up at least half of the final 23-man squad that coach Claude Le Roy will take to the finals early next year.

A second training camp is scheduled from January 3-15 in Oman in the Middle East, where Le Roy was previously national team coach.

This will include all the country’s foreign-based players, who must be released by their clubs 14 days before the start of the tournament.

DR Congo, who last won the Nations Cup title in 1974, play their first game against top seeded Ghana at the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium on January 20.

The Leopards have been drawn in Group B in the Windy City along with Ghana, Mali and Niger.

Le Roy, in two separate spells as coach of Congo, has frequently used South Africa as a base to camp his team in preparation for tournaments as well as key qualifying matches.
