DR Congo AFCON 2024 Squad

Manager Sébastien Desabre will lead his boys to a quest for their 3rd African Cup of Nations title in Ivory Coast. As we mentioned earlier, the AFCON teams are yet to release their list of players to make this tournament.

However, we expect players like Chancel Mbemba, Cedric Bakambu, Gael Kakuta, and Yoane Wissa to make the DR Congo squad for AFCON 2024.

DR Congo AFCON 2024 Predictions

Here, we will present a few predictions of what to expect from DR Congo at the AFCON.

Decent Qualifying Games

DR Congo had an excellent outing in the qualifying phase, finishing on top of their group with 12 points. This shows their level of preparedness for the 2024 AFCON Championship.

Going into the competition with that kind of form will pose problems for Morocco, Zambia and Tanzania, with whom they occupy the same group.

Experience in the Competition

Experience in the African Cup of Nations matters greatly, and the Democratic Republic of Congo has it. They’ve been one of the regular teams in the competition over the years and have won two titles.

Also, they are the most successful among the 4 teams that will grace the stage in Group F. Due to this, we expect them to go far in the competition and challenge for the title.

Coach’s Impact

DR Congo has significantly improved since Sébastien Desabre took over the National team in 2022. The Leopards lost their first two qualifying games with Hector Cuper in charge.

With Sébastien Desabre at the helm of affairs, the Leopards went on to top their qualifying group and secure their tickets to the 2024 AFCON in Ivory Coast. Judging from these performances, it is evident that the Frenchman has a clear idea of how to drive the team forward, and we expect a couple of good performances from the squad.

History of the DR Congo Team in AFCON

DR Congo, nicknamed the Leopards, is one of the most successful AFCON countries in history. Their first appearance was the fifth edition in 1965, and they couldn’t make it past the group stage.

In the future, they conquered the rest of their African counterparts in 1968 to be crowned the Champions – their first-ever AFCON title.

Their second continental title came in 1974, beating Zambia to claim it. Since then, their search for their 3rd continues. However, they’ve also come close several times, finishing in 3rd place in 1998 and 2015.

It will be a mistake to write them off as they’re set to grace another edition (34th) of this prestigious African Championship. With players like Yoane Wissa, Cedric Bakambu, Chancel Mbemba and Gael Kakuta and the introduction of Manager Sébastien Desabre, the DR Congo AFCON team might be in for another historic tournament.
