In Group C of the African Cup of taking Ivory Coast and DR Congo Friday against each other. Ivory Coast has something to make up after a weak start. Knows that team or to impress against Congo?
Ivory Coast: Stiff start
Ivory Coast, the team was awarded the cup after winning a final two years ago, the new edition of the Africa Cup has not started well. The land ahead as was indicated by the favorites, breaking in the first game against Togo, no time to impress. The Ivorians made a somewhat easygoing impression and had the greatest difficulty to make the game. Partly as a well-organized defensive Togo Ivory Coast could hardly be dangerous. A plus is that it does not really himself into trouble. The 0-0 final score was a logical result.
The team of French coach Dussuyer was probably a good time to be awakened. There is in fact no man overboard. When the Ivorians two years ago managed to win the African Nations Cup, starting in the group was not too smooth. At that time were even played the first two games alike. If this were to happen Ivory Coast would still be in the race again, though the team gives itself naturally prefer a win over Congo
DR Congo: Well victory
DR Congo is the tournament have started well, at least if we look at the result. The team coach Ibengé knew to win his first race. Just do not ask how. Against Morocco Congo definitely did not play a strong game. In the opening phase, the team escaped a backlog, while himself was able to establish no danger. After the break could Kabananga DRC, shooting an error by the Moroccan goalkeeper ahead.
What then did the DRC had little to do with football. There was plenty of time and stretched the duels were entered hard. Substitute Mutambala had to clear the field with two yellow cards, and for a long brief Congolese were even some time just nine men on the field. However, the equalizer of Morocco continued, making the Congo now fine for standing in Group C. Whether there really is a basis to build on, I do ask myself.
