Elim-CAN 2021: Prévu pour le lundi, le vol affrété des gabonais n’a atterri que ce mercredi à Libreville

Foot.cd reports on the travel difficulties encountered by DR Congo in making the trip to Libreville for their critical AFCON qualifying match against Gabon. A chartered flight scheduled to fly the team to Gabon on Monday was unable to make the trip until Wednesday, a day before the clash.

Despite the troubles in getting to Gabon the DRC looks to be mostly a full-strength squad with cornerstones Marcel Tisserand and Chancel Mbemba arrived from Europe along with domestic-based stars. The Leopards have been underachieving in the qualifying campaign with six points, one behind both Gambia and Gabon, with a loss on the road likely eliminating them from contention for a spot in Cameroon.
